Collinsville Library Scrapbook --
A History of Our Library From 1903-Today

I am getting ready to start the next scrapbook. This book will cover the years from 1950 through 1999. If you have any pictures or information about the Collinsville Library, stories you remember about using the library during this time, newspaper articles, program notices or anything you think would be of interest about our history please let me know so I can incorporate it into the 1950-1999 book. Pictures and articles, check out cards, anything like that will add so much to the authenticity of the book.

You are welcome to stop by the Collinsville Library anytime to see our first book which covers the years of 1903-1949.

Drop-In Rest Room
A pre-fabricated restroom was lifted off a truckbed and dropped into place next to the new kids play area at the City Park Thursday June 10th, There are still plenty of loose ends to complete before the park is re-opened for public use.
Life Guard Chair ... No Water
One of the life guard chairs salvaged from the Collinsville City Swimming Pool (operated from 1958 - 2004) is now on display in the Newspaper Museum In Collinsville. It is not stable enough to climb up and sit on, but if you have fond memories of the former pool (or chair) you are invited to stop by to visit. I also welcome you to send me "old" photos of you in one of the chairs (or just a favorite pool photo) to become part of a display I plan to use near the chair. If I can make room, I hope to also move in one of the old diving boards later this summer. -- Ted Wright --
