Library display cases are changed about once a month, and kept filled with material of local interest or oriented toward arts, crafts, and hobbies. If you would like to volunteer to set up a display on a subject of interest to you, please let us know.

 

April 2003: Genealogy and Family History

To highlight the April 27th program "Getting Started on Your Family History" the cases feature books and other sources used in genealogical research, along with old family photographs lent by library staff members.


 

March 2003: Dog Sled Mail and Racing

In honor of the Iditarod, which starts on March 1, we are featuring books and photos covering the history of dogsled transportation in Alaska, from the time of the Alaska-Yukon gold rushes through the present. This exhibit includes original photos from the gold rush era, as well as examples of mail carried by dogsled between 1930 and 1960 and on the routes of major dogsled races today. Books about the Iditarod and by gold rush writer Jack London are featured.



 

December 2002-January 2003: Model Trains

Volunteer exhibitor Gary Plazyk has created a display of HO gauge model train equipment and scenery, as well as books and magazines on the topic.


 

November 2002: Teddy Bears

This display in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Teddy Bear will be in place from October 21 through November 27. Don't miss it. Here are some samples.


 

September 2002: Pottery

 

September's display featured hand-crafted pottery of all sorts. Most items were lent by staff members and library volunteers. Featured books were from the library collection, and are available for circulation now that the display has been dismantled.
