I am going through library records from the 1930′s-1960′s. It is interesting to see what was going on at the library back then. Many of the board reports were written on tablet paper or sometimes scraps of paper. There is a folder that contains information for an award the library won. There is also a very large folder with State Library correspondence. This letter came from that folder. It is addressed to the head librarian at that time, Vilma Pikkoja. The library services project supervisor at the State Library is telling Vilma that she will not be able to attend a workshop because it for general staff and not administration. Look at the unique way she tells her. These records and reports are available for viewing in the local history and genealogy room at the Central Library.
