Library Searcy first one historic drawing barbara duncan

Searcy AR grows. Library grows also.

Barbara S Duncan, that's me, presented a lovely drawing of Searcy's first library to Darla Ino, Library Director of the White County Regional Library System.  The present library (remember it is moving to a larger one) did not have a picture of the first library which was small and charming in Spring Park.  Barbara offered them this framed print and they seemed glad to have it. It will be displayed in their "historic" room that has lots of interesting items.  I, Barbara, just wrote a blog with a postcard picture of the library.  Click to see it https://activerain.com/droplet/HZDy and from there you my go back further and see more about its construction. Try this one https://activerain.com/droplet/g52D

And another. https://activerain.com/droplet/5gms

 

They will have plenty of display room in the new library when they move into it!

Hi, Barbara. With the changing world and technology landscape, I am glad that libraries are still vital to our communities. I have spent many valuable hours in libraries and met the author Ray Bradbury at a book signing once here in California. What a treat. Thank you for sharing. Have a great weekend.

I had to look at that photo twice.  Darla looks incredibly similar to a friend of mine.
