Don’t Throw Out Those Old Yearbooks!

If you come across old Lickingana or Northridge Yearbooks when you are cleaning out, please don’t throw them away. They are great sources for genealogical research and general history of our community. The library and museum are working on collecting a complete set of each. Also, we recently had a request from the Ohio Genealogical Society for any extra year books we might have, because they are trying to collect and preserve this precious historic resource for future generations. Just bring them to the Alexandria Library during regular business hours. The library and museum will keep one of each year and then the extras will be passed on to the OGS. Thank you for your help with this project.
