Attendees at the Old Settlers Picnic are pictured on Aug. 17, 1895. A basket dinner was held at the residence of John Y. Eckman, southwest of Paoli, and coffee, ice cream and lemonade were served. According to the Aug. 16, 1895, issue of the State Herald, “The program of the day will consist of music, speaking, bicycle races, baseball, foot races, etc. Holyoke band will furnish the music. Come one, come all, and have a good time and forget all about the hoppers.” — source: Phillips County Museum

Though she transitioned to assisted living just a few months ago, 99-year-old Mary Allen  is making the Carriage House home. — The Holyoke Enterprise | Johnson Publications

In 1940, parents Owen and Eppa Young are pictured with their daughters, from left, Margaret, Wanola, Myrtle, Mary and Stella. Four older half siblings and three brothers who had died by that time make up Mary Allen’s large family.

Don’t hold a grudge; be thankful; enjoy life

    Getting to know Mary Allen may very well make you want to call your grandparents, but that’s probably a risk she’d consider worth taking.

Employees Kathy Bornhoft and Hannah Marner are trained, ready and waiting to help patrons start checking out the e-books and digital audio books now available at Heginbotham Library. Personal computers, tablets, e-readers and phones can be used for the service, but tablets and e-readers are also available for checkout. — The Holyoke Enterprise | Johnson Publications

Bookworms rejoice!

    One million books — it’s hard to even visualize. The expansive Long Room at Trinity College Library, a book lover’s dream, holds one-fifth of that, and it seems to go on endlessly.
