“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!

Wild

by:  Cheryl Strayed

download (8)A powerful, blazingly honest memoir:  the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe – and built her back up again.  At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything.  In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed.  Four years later with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life;  to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State – and to do it alone.  She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.”  But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

Strayed faces down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and loneliness of the trail.  Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened and ultimately healed her.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND….
