Over 100 books covering Native American history to regional archaeology fill the shelves of a new lending library at the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC). The books are available to all SRAC’s members to sign out and use for research and/or leisure.
The books have come from many sources including SRAC’s Ted Keir who built his private library over many decades. Keir explained, “Over the years when I saw a book about Native American Indians I would buy them. When I was a teacher, I would even bring some to school for when I covered study hall for students who didn’t have anything to do.” Other sources include private book collections of other SRAC members to include cofounders Dick Cowles and Deb Twigg.
SRAC’s Deb Twigg added, “We are always looking for ways to enhance SRAC’s membership experience. Right now members get the SRAC Journal several times a year, discounts on every event, a free annual luncheon and other things all year long, and the lending library is another great addition to what we already offer to our membership who pay as little as $15 per year.”
