Palestine Public Library

What a sad turn of events! Our Public library, which was housed in an old school, has had to close due to structural failure of the building. The roof caved in! No one was hurt. At this time "Workmen have labored all week to stabilize the library to make it safe enough for librarians and volunteers to remove books from underneath the mangled mess that was the roof." I haven't read anything about our special collections but I hope hope that the books and papers there are all ok.

You can see a couple of pictures and read about it here.
