Reorganizing the Yearbooks
Every so often, reorganization must occur. The local yearbook collection in the Folklife Center has been arranged by title for many years, but it becomes difficult to browse if one doesn't know that Queensbury's yearbook is called "Orbit". We have been discussing rearranging the yearbooks by city for a few months now, & I decided to take a crack at it today!
In the process of reorganizing the yearbooks, I discovered a few with interesting cover art.
Plus, a number of the yearbooks from 1976 featured Bicentennial imagery.
I hope the next time you come in to look at local yearbooks you have an easier time finding the right one. I know I will.
Though, I just realized I put The Crown from St. Mary's Academy in the wrong spot. I will be moving it with the other Glens Falls yearbooks next week.
You can search our local yearbook holdings by searching the online catalog on our website: https://www.crandalllibrary.org/
