In Celebration of National Library Week
The Library Association of Sandusky was incorporated in Ohio on November 4, 1895, and has provided free library service to residents of Erie County ever since. For more history of Sandusky Library, visit the library’s website. In honor of National Library Week, here are some pictures of readers and library patrons from the collections of the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center. Three young ladies are seen reading in the back of a truck in front of the library in 1926.
In the early 1950s, the Follett House was home to Home Economics classes from Sandusky High School. These young readers were a part of the early education unit of the Home Economics class.
Long time Head Librarian Mary McCann sometimes worked on the Bookmobile.
We do not know the exact date of this picture, but notes on the back indicate that these women and girls were all members of Mrs. Emrich’s Reading Club.
Besides tradional books in hard copy, Sandusky Library now offers books for your Smart Phone, Kindle, or tablet, and eBooks for your mp3 player. Click on the eMedia link on the Sandusky Library’s home page to get started.
