In Aug. 2013, the Fond du Lac Historical Society asked me to re-open their research library, located in the Blakely Museum. I am a local history buff, genealogist, artist, and retired grandma, and the prospect of opening the library was very exciting.
Right now I am spending all of my spare time just going through every cabinet and bookshelf, trying to familiarize myself with all that is there. What a daunting challenge.
So far the surprises have been finding some very old Sears-Roebuck catalogs, and some extremely old cookbooks. Many more file cabinets to go!
I already have some new donations to catalog, and the library isn't open yet.
Stay tuned. I will let you know when the doors are open again.
