“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.”

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 Last Runaway
by: Tracy Chevalier
Ohio 1850. For a modest English Quaker stranded far from home, life is a trial. Untethered from the moment she leaves England, fleeing personal disappointment, Honor Bright is forced by family tragedy to rely on strangers in an alien, untamed landscape. The men sweat and spit; the women drink whiskey and shoot copperheads, even as they stitch bonnets and quilts.
Nineteenth century America is practical, precarious,k and scarred by the continuing injustice of slavery. In her new home, Honor discovers that principles count for little, even within a religious community famed for championing human equality.
Drawn into the clandestine activities of the Underground Railroad, Honor befriends two exceptional people who embody the startling power of defiance. Eventually she must decide if she too can act on what she believes in, whatever the personal cost.
