Peabody’s Book Club has been meeting for many years now and have chosen a wide variety of novels and have had many hours of very interesting discussion, refreshments and even a guest speaker or two! They have even provided support for library events! The club meets the first Thursday of every month starting at 1:00 P.M. usually in the Library Basement Meeting room. Contact the Library if you are interested in joining.
For several years now, Camilea Davidson has been on a
quest. She has a vision of the future
where she is able to work with children in a community. The first challenge of her quest was accomplished
in May of 2019 when she graduated from Tabor College with a degree in
Educational Studies and a minor in History.
Camilea is now working simultaneously on her second and third
challenges. She is currently working on
her Masters in Library Science degree and has just secured the position of
Children’s Librarian at Peabody Township Library!
Camilea has some very ambitious plans for Peabody Township
Library. The first project will be to
establish a story time for the library.
She’s going to start slowly and then try to build the program to reach
out to the community. The resources
available to the parents of Peabody are very vast and numerous. Many resources have not been illuminated in
such a way to attract the attention of the parents in Peabody. Camilea will be making herself available to
help parents navigate to information which will make them and their children
more successful in school and in their social life.
Thanks to a generous donation in memory of Adele and Harold Taylor, the Peabody Township Library has started a website where anybody can digitally search the Peabody Gazette Bulletin. To access the site, go to the website listed below and follow the directions.
The website uses “Google Search Parameters”. This means if you are looking for information about John P. Church, you do not just want to type his name in the search field. If you do, every time the name John appears AND every time there is a Capital “P” AND every time the word church appears will be flagged. You want to put quotation marks around the name to limit the search parameters to just this one person. Ex. “John P. Church”. Now, only when these three appear together will the paper be flagged for you.
All papers are available since the 1870’s and last years papers will be added soon.
The library board is wanting to add PBHS annuals or year books to the page as well. We are currently looking for donors willing to make this happen. If you are interested, please e-mail the library at email@example.com
The Ann Potter Room is a large meeting place located in the basement of the library with a kitchen. Using the North Library door, a lift was installed making the basement handicap accessible. The room is available to be reserved online by clicking on the button at the top of the webpage called “Basement Suite Reservations.”
Check out the History of YOUR Peabody Library site with links to more information. How did the Peabody Library get in Peabody, Kansas? The Peabody Gazette-Bulletin from 1913 and 1914 help answer the question. See Articles from the Peabody newspaper.
More information is planned to be added in the future, so please come back again!
