WHEN: Saturday, October 1, 2005
In 1917, Dr. Mary Leah Cook, a Quaker, along with other civic-minded persons decided to establish a library in Waynesville, Ohio. They had no building, no books and no money but they did have faith in their project and a willingness to do all possible to make the vision a reality. We are reaping the benefits of that effort today and will be far into the future.
Come to the Mary L. Cook Public Library on October 1st, 2005 and learn:
What medicine was like in 1908 when Dr. Mary graduated from medical school. Find out what it was like to be a horse and buggy doctor in the early 20th century. Find out what daily life was like when compared with today.
Learn about Dr. Mary's life. Meet some of her descendents.
Share your memories of Dr. Mary and they will be placed in a special "Memory Book" which will be kept in The Ohioana Room of the library in her honor.
Come to the library and celebrate Dr. Mary’s 136th birthday! The library will be opened from 9:00 A. M. ~ 2:00 P.M.
