Here’s a true piece of history!!!
Thanks to librarian Katherine Boden for contacting us about these items!!!
The books pictured below were recently donated to the Cranston Public Library. They are items which once belonged to us. You will notice they are dated 1887. If you recall, this library suffered a devastating fire in 1957. We were unable to salvage ANY books.
These items inadvertently survived the fire. We wish we knew the person to thank for keeping these safe for us (little did they know they would save them from the fire!)
I suppose this is one of those RARE occasions where it is ok to return a library book late?! 😂😂😂😂
