Description

Oral history interview with Pattie Johnston, outreach coordinator at the Lawrence Public Library, where she talks about her experience of the library, starting with the Carnegie library, which she visited often as a child. She describes the experience of being in the library, what it looked like and felt like. She then goes to to describe her tenure working in the new library building, starting November 1972. She discusses the way the library has contributed to Lawrence, how the community has been historically involved with the public library, and how the role of the library has changed with time. In closing, Pattie tells the story—starting in minute 20:20—of a ghost who inhabited the library prior to its renovation, former custodian Jim Anthony. Access it HERE
