Hi Lil,
I've done my time in the Spruance Library and it's basement, which is allegedly off-limits to researchers. The depth of the collections is beyond comprehension.

Anybody going there should have a working knowledge of Pennsylvania Municipal Government and all of the little goodies that are tucked away in each county office.

You should also go in there with a very open mind. Wide open. And prop those eyes all the way open, too!

If you are willing to take the time to properly dig through countless layers of history, the Spruance Library is the place for you. Don't underestimate the place. Use it to the fullest and it won't let you down.

So the Librarian liked my write-up. Which Librarian? It's been a while since I've been there and they may have new staff. The description sounds like Fran, who was my mentor. She banished me to the basement and made me fully understand the complexities of the ancient county records.

I was supposed to volunteering down there, but I don't think sitting on the floor reading old justice of the peace dockets is quite what they had in mind.

Respectfully,
Jeff
