The need for blood products in our region is critical, especially with Labor Day approaching. The Central Blood Bank will be conducting a Blood Drive at the Peters Township Public Library on August 24. All participating donors will receive a free t-shirt.
Appointments can be made by visiting www.centralbloodbank.org. Click on “make an Appointment” and search for group code C594. You may also call 1.866.366.6771. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are strongly encouraged. Please remember to eat a healthy meal, drink plenty of fluids, and get a good night’s rest before donating. Also remember to bring a valid ID. Each donation helps save three lives!
Exhibit: Looking at Lincoln: Political Cartoons from the Civil War
August 30 - September 27
This exhibit explores the Civil War and issues of slavery through political cartoons depicting Abraham Lincoln and his policies. The cartoons are vividly biting and invite the viewer to put aside 21st century assumptions and look at events through the eyes of people living in the era. As Americans continue to debate the legacy of slavery, these cartoons provide a historical reference for current events.
This exhibit comes to the library courtesy of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
ORAL HISTORY DISPLAY
As part of a community history project to record and preserve the history of the township through past and present residents, the library offers an extensive photo display about life in Peters Township. Images on display on the grand staircase, throughout the second floor, and inside Café Lee include various facets of the history of the township including farm life, education, transportation, government, recreation, churches, and industry. Take a few moments next time you visit to see how life in Peters Township has evolved over time.
