Orleans Library Celebrates 100 Years

C. B. Preston Memorial Library will be celebrating 100 years of service to the community on Sunday September 10. The Cordelia Bennett Preston library was dedicated at Orleans, Nebraska on September 11, 1917, and was a gift from James McClean Preston to the Orleans Township in memory of his deceased wife.

The afternoon activities will start at 2:00 when antique appraiser, Bob Jones, will be critiquing antiques. (Mini Antique Road Show)  Those attending are welcome to bring antiques to learn the appraised value.  Also part of the program will be a special stamp cancellation.  Picture postcards of the library will be given out and the Orleans Postmaster will be on hand to sell postage stamps and cancel the stamp with a onetime cancellation which is unique to the library.  Even if you are not a collector of postal memorabilia you will want this special cancellation for the future.

Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the afternoon and everyone is invited.
