  • In her office with the impresive collection personal guidance and collection of polices bounded and shelves with archival precision as well as the fun gadgets.
  • We began collecting materials for the shortly after Louise Keuck was hired as head librarian (1962). At that time, Miss Keuck had the foresight to begin to save such things as Franklin Park telephone books, photographs, and high school yearbooks. Lillian O'Boyle was hired as local history librarian in 1973. The collection grew to include oral histories, newspaper clippings, biographical information on early settlers, additional photographs, maps, etc. Today we continue to collect these, as well as other materials. Our newspaper collection begins with the first issue of the Franklin Park Journal (September 13, 1946). The Franklin Park Journal combined with the Franklin Park Herald in 1983. We have continued this collection to date. Past issues of the newspaper have been bound and are available on microfilm. The East Leyden Yearbooks date back to 1928. We own the East Leyden yearbooks from the years 1928-32, 1934, 1936-39, and 1951-present. (We are hoping to fill in the missing dates to help complete our collection.

    • 35. I ndependent library district <ul><li>An independent library district is in a better position to be an important presence and asset to the community. A district can respond to the community’s wants and needs directly, and often more quickly. A village library may be able to fulfill the same role in the community if village government shares the vision of the importance of the library to the community. As an example, in difficult economic times, library funding might be one of the first places village governments will cut spending. Even though during these difficult times, the library is a place that provide help with job searching, resumes writing, Internet access, and free to low cost entertainment needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Regarding overhead, whether a village library or independent library district, we both have about the same administrative functions. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.franklinparklibrary.org/policies </li></ul>
