Come see our scrapbooks

The Webb City Area Genealogical Society has a nice collection of scrapbooks that belonged to local residents.

Volunteers have been organizing them, and they are available for viewing on “our” third floor of the library.

The scrapbooks contain a wealth of information, with everything from sporting events to weddings.  Many of the books are beautifully done and contain precious mementos from the past.
