    That was my troop, and I was there! I have a photo of myself and others trimming the tree; it was in the local newspaper. I’m not in this photo, but I think I recognize Diane Tepe, Susan Utell, Karen Proswimmer, Maureen Lanaro, Nancy Lehren. This is awesome.

      Thanks for your comment! If you have any other photos from your troop or school and would like to share on this blog, let me know. We’d love it!

    I have scrapbooks full of stuff starting with kindergarten (Mrs. Zutt, the Hills School 1960-61) all the way up to high school (1973). I just need to dig them out of storage, and then I would love to share them with you.

    I have so many good memories of the Melville library, too, one of my favorite places as a child. I still remember it so well – scampering up the staircase from the children’s section with books in my arms. I probably still have my old library card!

    No wonder I went on to get my MLS many years later!

      An old library card would be amazing!

      We have a scanner here in the library; I could help you digitize anything you can dig out of storage.

    Thanks, Ellen! I am so grateful for everyone who has shared history online, and I want to do the same. All my stuff will end up at the Huntington Historical Society in due time, but it would be nice to have a larger audience in the meantime. Maybe once our house renovations are over and stuff comes out of storage, I can gather it all up and make a trip to LI (I live now outside of Philly) so you can digitize away!

    How long have you been at HHHL? Libraries 4eva!
