Do you enjoy looking through old photos, sharing memories, and preserving local history? The Way We Were Club may be for you! The library now has thousands of photos and negatives, covering a multitude of subjects, we're received from Meyersdale's former New Republic newspaper. If you like technology, we can even show you how to scan photos for digital preservation! There is no set schedule for the club. It is up to members to decide when they want to come.

NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: Join us on Thursday, May 23 at 7 PM for our discussion of "In Time: The Killing of Polly Paul" by Paul Petrunak, Jr. The book tells the story of a murder that took place in Cambria County, PA shortly after the US Civil War. While some dialog has been manufactured so that it reads as a novel, the facts of the case have been researched, and it is a true crime.
(This was originally schedule for May 16, but has been rescheduled to avoid conflict with the MAHS Chorus & Band Concert.)
