LIBRARY LINK OF THE MONTH:
week
Just added to our Reference Links is a local history/genealogy site that looks like it's going to be both immense and informative.

Duryea, PA now has its own offical Hometown web page. The site features information on the history of Duryea, and includes LOTS AND LOTS of pictures from the town's history--from sports to schools to scans of old city directories and programs.
