North Independence on Display
January 22, 2013
Come check out memorabilia from KC Nut & Bolt, Sheffield Steel, Armco Steel, Glauner Tractor, Bell Telephone, Katz Drug Store, Manor Bread Company, and more. The North Independence Branch is now showing items from these places. Along with these displays are gems and minerals from the Gem & Mineral Society; quilts from a local quilting group; and hats and shoes from all around the world presented by Cultural Crossroads. Artifacts from Drumm Farm are part of a permanent display in the case on the southwest wall.
Upstairs in the Youth Services Area, we are featuring Hobbit-related collectibles as a nod to the movie's premier in December 2012. Your Library wants to reach out to the thing-lover in all of us. We take pride in our display cases; they're a way to connect history and culture. We also display other collections: GI Joe's, artwork, and YOUR collectibles! That's right - we will enjoy showing the things you would like to share with the public. The next time you are dusting your collection, consider calling us and asking when your collection could be displayed for all to enjoy.
