Fredrickson Display Case

Linda Richard's Beautiful DisplayThe Gordon Fredrickson display case was given in memory of Gordon Fredrickson, a long time member of the community and faithful patron of the library.

The library’s goal is to change the displays each month. We have had many varied collections over the years ranging from a license plate collection to school bells.

This month Linda Richards has loaned us her pitcher collection. The collection includes milk pitchers, gallon pitchers, cream pitchers, and various other sizes. Linda’s collection includes gifts from family and piano students, as well as heirlooms passed down from family. One pitcher was even purchased at the Stromsburg City Wide Garage Sales in 2010!

Stop in the library and view this beautiful collection.

Each book comes with it’s own code so when you log onto the website www.av2books.com and enter the code, it opens the book you are holding in your hand! You then have the option of having the book read aloud to you, or you can choose to read the book online yourself.

Come check out these titles today!
