Friends of the Bronson Branch Library

The Media Center at the Bronson Branch Library celebrates its second year of being open to the public. Many of the fund raising events we do help to make extra payments on the loan we still have for this beautiful addition to our historic library. Yesterday at our monthly meeting we voted to pay another $7,000 on the loan, which will bring the loan down to less than $67,000. Thank you to everyone who supports our group and the library by attending these events and helping us as we work to finish paying for the Media Center.

Notes from the Bronson Journal

Branch: 
Bronson

We came across these notes that were taken from early 1900 Bronson Journals. Looking at some of them we decided these were the early form of Facebook! Take a look, you can just about imagine some being posted to Facebook today.

June 02, 1911-The man who annoyed a certain lady by calling at her house last Tuesday night had better not repeat the performance.

December 04, 1914-Two of Bronson's young married men left suddenly last week with a car load of "Chickens". Divorce proceedings expected to follow.
