WWII LETTERS DISCOVERED AT THE GAY-KIMBALL LIBRARY

From the Issue: 
December 2011
A treasure trove of letters including several v-mails written between 1942-1944 to Gay Kimball Librarian, Annie Clark, along with several lists of Troy citizens in the armed forces for that time period were recently discovered at the Library.  The letters were solicited by the Librarian and Library Trustees, George Ripley, A. H. Hanscom and J. T. Hawkins, to keep a record of all the Troy residents who were in the military and where they were stationed.  This correspondence ranges from short postcards to multi-page letters describing living conditions, weather and state of mind.

Thanks to everyone who bought or donated books for our Fall book sale.  It was greatly appreciated!

Please sign a petition letting the legislature know that the InterLibrary Loan van service is an important service that should continue to be paid for with federal funds.  Using the van service in 2010 saved $2,407 by not having to use the postal service to ship interLibrary loans.
