CCPL and Merrick County Museum Partner for an Exhibit. “Herstory: We All Have a Story To Tell.”

The Merrick County Historical Museum is currently featuring a special exhibit at our library:

“Herstory: We All Have a Story to Tell.” These are the stories of ten remarkable Merrick County Women.

Do you know how the Ormsby Road in Merrick County got its name? Read about the Ormsby family and their daughter Louise. Louise was a gifted soprano soloist. She toured with John Phillip Sousa! Find out how Litzenberg Memorial County Hospital got its name! Read about Marguerite Smith Roberts. In 1969 Marguerite wrote the screenplay for “True Grit” (the screenplay which earned John Wayne his only Oscar).

We invite you to stop in and see this wonderful exhibit while it’s here!
