City Council debated meeting, and decided a Council Valley Library to sell 2 01 Historical Calendar The Library is raising funds to eventually expand the current building, which will allow the library to house many more books, films and audio books. The expansion will also improve the space available for public amenities such as the computer stations and the meeting room. Building upon the success of last year's calendar sales the Library Board decided to produce another calendar just in time for the Holiday Season. The theme for this year's calendar is the rural schoolhouses of this region and the people who attended them. They enlisted the help of Misty Brodiaea Springer to research, write and design the calendar. But this project was truly a group effort as she worked closely with librarian, Patty Gross, and volunteers from the Council Valley Museum who provided many of the historic photos. The research process also uncovered short historical narratives written by teachers and community members recalling what school and community life was like a few decades ago. This historic calendar is a celebration of school and community in rural Idaho, of an age gone by, when the school house was at the center of country life and time seemed to move' a little slower. One-room schools were commonplace throughout rural portions of the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In most rural and small town schools; all of the students met in a single room. There, a single teacher taught academic basics to several grade levels of elementary age boys and girls. In rural communities school houses were also used as meeting places for weddings and funerals, sweetheart dances, pot- lucks and politics. Schools in Adams County were spread approximately within two miles of any given settlement to keep the distance traveled by students from home to school as short as possible. This calendar includes photos of many of the region's historic schools, and some of the many children who learned there; and excerpts from local articles and memoirs give a wonderfully personal feeling to this charming nostalgic calendar. Proceeds from the sale of this calendar will be used for the Council Valley Library's Building Fund. The calendars are )ust $12.00 each and can be purchased at the library or at various spots around town - so keep your eyes open.
