I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the museum/library when it was housed only in the original old library building. My father instilled a respect for and interest in history and a great-great aunt inspired me to do research on the family. My father would drop me off and I'd spend the entire day (until closing) doing research, looking at exhibits and learning about my community's past. The staff were the best and treated me (a child) with as much respect as any other person who was there doing research. They looked out for me as well. They'd ask what I was researching and while away from my table I'd be pleasantly surprised to find a book or file left for me to review. They also connected me with others doing research on my family. It has been years since I visited the museum but I remember those days fondly. They were very much an influence on my future as I obtained a Masters in Library Science and have worked in a major urban library in Ohio for over 20 years now and am currently the Genealogy Subject Specialist for this library. I very much enjoy helping others pursue their interests in genealogical and historical research and hope that I inspire others as much as I was during my visits there. I wish to say thank you for such a wonderful experience and am proud to see how you've grown and continue to help and inspire others. Thanks, Russ Pollitt
