In praise of library displays
Morgan County is tremendously fortunate to have such a great public library that houses a wealth of excellent resources, is pleasantly laid out and furnished, and is run with literary enthusiasm by a handful of paid staff and many more volunteers.
I’m writing at this time to compliment the library for some of the most appealing and interesting Black History Month displays that I’ve ever seen. While various folks take turns each month creating displays to grace the entryway showcase and the showcase on the wall opposite the circulation desk, this month’s displays were produced by librarian Linda Cole.
Cole featured famous black musicians and singers of yesteryear in honor of Black History Month. For a truly enjoyable glimpse into the history of some of the men and women whose musical talents were both notable for their time and have influenced the broader music culture, these displays are not to be missed.
The library, on Congress Street, is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
