Take an adventure into the past

Are you a person who loves history or is interested in genealogy? Remember that the Mary Cotton Public Library website has a link to the past Bern and Sabetha newspapers where one may do dedicated searches for events and/or people.

Visit https://marycotton.advantage-preservation.com/ to research information for Sabetha’s 150th Birthday Celebration. Make sure to enclose the name or event in quotation marks for best results. If your business is planning a window display, or needs some past history, this is a great place to start.

It is rather fascinating and entertaining to see how “simple” or “complicated” life was during the growth of Sabetha. From fires, tornadoes, epidemics, drought and floods, Sabetha has probably seen it all and survived due to the resiliency of its residents and surrounding community. This site is definitely one resource to explore.

Discover new adventures with new books

Adventure begins at the Library — discover your path! Thanks to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, MCPL will be adding a bunch of new books to the library collection, both in hard copy and in digital form.

We appreciate the $3,000 Summer Reading grant that will provide a variety of new titles for adults and kids in these categories: Large Print (LP) and Dyslexic friendly (blue dots), Easy Readers (ER), Picture Books (E) and Board Books (E-T). All new titles were chosen to help our patrons find adventure and exciting information this summer.

If you can’t take a physical trip, stop by the library and pick out a wonder filled adventure in the form of a book or DVD. Our staff just loves to help you find what you seek!
