The program for the evening was a history of the library since its inception in 1893. Mrs. Margaret Jones, a member of theB oard of Directors of the library, told about the early history of the library. The library was established 86 years ago as a gift from Frank Peavey who left Eastport as a young man to seek his for- tune in the west. Frank and a brother, William, entered the grain business in Minnesota and prospered. Frank, whose picture is in the library, left money for a library to be built as a memorial to his father, Albert Peavey. A marble bust of Albert occupies a distinguished location in the library. A stipulation did accom- pany the donation of funds, that the community of Eastport had to provide 5,000 books for the library and furnish- ings for the building. Occasionally, a read- er will take an old book out on loan that will have a notation in the front that it is from a family library. Often times these old books were ones that were donated by individuals to make up the necessary 5,000 volumes. Today the Peavey Mem- offal Library has 22,000 volumes. Over 7,000 books were borrowed by library users Jast year. Mrs. Winnifred French, president of the library board, told of recent activit- ies of the library, the growth of the lib- rary and the finances of the hbrary; Mrs. Sheila Malloch gave a summary of the Dewey descimal system used in catalog- ing books. The librarian, Mrs. Alice Sleight, described the various paintings and items on display in the Reading Room and gave a bit of interesting his- tory about the ship model and other items. Following the library tour, refresh- ments were served at the home of Mrs. Winifred French. A donation has been made to the WSHD radio station at Shead high school by the Literary Round Table to help de- fray travel expenses for the trip to Augus- ta by station personnel to film the legis- lature.
