Welcome to the Town Hall Library!

 

MANY THANKS!

The Town Hall Library staff wishes to thank our local fire, police and EMT services for their quick response to our call on October 12. They were caring and efficient, and we couldn't ask for better people serving our community!

We had an unusual, burning odor and had to evacuate our building. It was determined that the problem originated in one of our furnaces. Once it was decided that the building was safe, we were able to return to business as usual. We apologize for an...y inconvenience that this incident may have caused our patrons and community.

Our heating & A/C service determined that 3 small wasp nests had been built inside the furnace, and once it kicked in to heat the library, they began to burn. The problem has been resolved.

Again, many thanks to all who responded to help us!

FEATURED ARTISTS - Jim Swanson

 
     In conjunction with our Vietnam War exhibit, we are featuring the photography of a local veteran, Jim Swanson.  Jim received his first camera from his wife on their first Christmas in 1954.  The 35mm Argosy served him well as their kids grew into adults.  As a family, they traveled to all lower 48 states before the kids graduated from high school.  He took about 20 rolls of film each vacation which resulted in 600 or so pictures.  Occasionally, a good picture resulted!
     As a Korean war vet, he was very lucky as the army decided to make his graduating class instructors for follow-on classes in the Nike missile fire control system.
     After the army, he worked in industry testing or working on the Thor missile system and the FB111 fighter bomber.  In 1978 he became a small business owner in the construction industry.
     After retiring, Jim and his wife continued traveling and he was always taking pictures. The new digital cameras allow much photography, resulting in a much less expensive hobby.
     Please enjoy the variety of photographs that Jim has selected to display with us through the month of October and into November.
