A wonderful reason to drop by our Library is to see the current display of historical items.  The displays are created from the materials in our Archives and loans from our members.  Sylvia Hocker coordinates this effort. The Perry Historians wishes to thank her for her efforts and also our members everyone who has loaned items. 

 July 1, 2009-November 1, 2009:   Perry Countians in World War II. (Removed 11-09)

On exhibit are both military and civilian memorabilia, including uniforms, decorations, patches, medals, pictures, news clippings, maps, books and much more. Some of the materials have been donated to the permanent collection of the Perry Historians and others are from generous lenders. Also, included are the pictures from the Perry Review 2007 of those men featured in Remembered: Perry Countians who Gave the Supreme Sacrifice.
