Olden Days

This old 4" x 11" hand-painted sign is on loan to the library from our neighbors, the Gruens. Their house, next door to Sawyer Hall, used to be a general store and post office.  Bob thinks perhaps this sign was displayed in the store to remind shoppers about the library hours.

So far we have not been able to find out how long ago the library kept these hours.

[Update 1/14/2015 8:45 am. The Town of Heath Selectboard at their meeting last night decided to allow the Library to open to the public today. See post dated 1/14/2015 for more information.]
