I arrived early and immediately went to Children's Library. Two features I especially love are the the Alice in Wonderland sculpture by Florence Thomas, circa 1930.
and Bronze Tree
I still had some time so I went to the Friends' Library Store where I purchased some fabulous presents. Because some readers may be the recipients, I am only going to post photographs of two items I purchased for myself. One was a postcard book
and the other a Christmas ornament.
I loved the program and knew most of the presenters. I worked at the Oregon State Library when I first began library school and input almost 1,000 photographs in Past Perfect under the direction of then Special Collections Librarian, Merrialyce Blanchard. I was delighted to see that the photograph of the musical family on their homepage is the very first one I researched and put in PastPerfect. It was working there that made me want to become an archivist.
