I am literally in tears & sick to my stomach.. I was finally able to visit my hometown library this AM. In addition to having my entire family history (many irreplaceable books my family has donated over the years for safe preservation) there were actual letters preserved (1)
From: The civil war, from generals in the field to Lincoln, letters between generals, letters to parents describing what they saw etc.. THE ENTIRE separate HISTORICAL Area of the building WAS DISASSEMBLED... Was told that is was no longer needed. They digitized it!!!!! (2)
They need a MARKETING OFFICE!!! What in GODS TARNATION EVER possessed the library to DESTROY HISTORY that not only belonged to my FAMILY (which entrusted it to you) but Our community and OUR NATION!!! I am beyond saddened, disheartened and just plain pissed. (3)
I don’t have the heart to tell my 90yr old father what they have done. This will NOT be the end of this..I can guarantee it.I wonder how many other libraries have pulled similar unilateral decision during cover of #COVID #ErasingHistory @SpookdBlog @MaxMedieval @ThewheeldealM
