TGIF

What a week here at the Congregational Library! We started on Monday without heat. Thankfully that has all been straightened out and we're all very warm inside today. We continue to make wonderful discoveries in the Pratt Collection materials. Mrs. S. Brainard Pratt was a Board member of the Women's Board of Missions for over twenty-five years. She also wrote poetry and pamphlets, and contributed to Life and Light for Heathen Women. We would like to find out her first name. She was Mr. Pratt's second wife.

We've also printed up and made available a new very attractive (thanks to Jess) Welcome to the Library brochure for visitors to the library.
