Learn more about local history!
Each month, Patty Mosher, the library's archivist writes a article about local history using the library's archival materials for Off the Shelf, the library's newsletter. In the past year, she has written articles about local inventor and industrialist, Gustav Wenzelmann; the "daring" 1879 bank robbery of the Farmers and Mechanics Bank; 1905 Thanksgiving festivities; the history of the Custer Hotel; and many other topics. The articles are always full of interesting and often little known local details!
Off the Shelf is available at the library and via the library's website.
