Library staff visit the Collinsville Historical Museum




As a staff, we like to keep up with our community and what's going on. We recently visited our next door neighbors at the Collinsville Historical Museum and enjoyed viewing the exhibits. The museum was built by grants written by our Director, Barbara Rhodes, and enjoys the land and building rent free due to a generous arrangement with the Library's Board of Trustees.

Of particular interest to the staff were the Abraham Lincoln memorabilia, the Collinsville sport history section and the old furniture.

Check the museum out soon! Their opening hours are Tuesday - Thurday 11 am - 3pm and Friday & Saturday 12 pm - 4pm. You can reach them by phone on 618 344 1834, or check out their website
