“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.” 
― Sidney Sheldon

The New Lisbon Memorial Library is full of wonderful pieces of history.  We have albums full of historic photos and stories that date back as late as 1854.  These albums were a labor of love for local historian Fred Rabuck and his assistant John Stastny.

Now, thanks to our own archivist, Trenton Streck-Havill, these images, as well as Wa-Du-Shuda yearbooks, are available to you right from the comfort of your computer.  It is as easy as a click of a button!

Check out the Tab “New Lisbon Archives” to begin your trek through history!

The Invention of Wings

by:  Sue Monk Kidd

downloadThis story is a fictionalized account of the life of abolitionist Sarah Grimke, her sister Nina, and their family slave named Handful.  Sarah lives in Charleston, South Carolina.  As a four year old, she witnesses the brutality of slave punishment.  The event scars her emotionally and physically, as she develops a stutter while speaking.  At eleven years old, Sarah is given a slave named Handful, who is ten.  Sarah doesn’t want Handful, but there is nothing she can do.  Over time, the two girls bond and share a friendship in secret between them.  As Sarah gets older, she becomes more and more outspoken in her opposition to slavery, and Handful seeks ways to either buy her freedom or escape.  She becomes part of a planned slave uprising, but some of the slaves tip off the city of Charleston, which crushes the revolt before it even begins.  Handful settles back into slavery, looking for her chance for freedom.  Sarah and her younger sister Nina become vocal leaders of the abolitionist and women’s right movements, writing pamphlets for both causes.  As a result, they are both banned from Charleston.  Nevertheless, Sarah journeys to Charleston to help Handful and her sister Sky escape to freedom.
