Check Out the Library Geocaches!

 

Never heard of geocaching? According to geocaching.com, it is a "real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location."

With nearly 3 million geocaches placed world wide and nearly 6 million registered geocachers, it is quickly becoming one of the top outdoor recreational hobbies. Getting started is easy - sign up for a free account at geocaching.com, search for a cache near you, and you're ready to go!

Marshall Public Library is pleased to be a part of this exciting adventure.  Be sure to check out our new series of library related geocaches. There are 3 located around our library districts - "Little Library Outpost #1", "Little Library Outpost #2", and "Dewey or Not?".

Learn more at https://www.geocaching.com/guide/default.aspx or stop by the library to check-out a how-to book.

 

 

Oral Histories of Local Residents Online!

The Friends of Marshall Public Library have been conducting oral history interviews with area residents since 1994. Interviews have been collected in conjunction with Smithsonian exhibits, local history projects, 4-H projects, and more. The Marshall High School class of 1999 contributed many interviews as a part of their local history projects; several interviews, concerning World War II, were conducted by Dan Crews. The project has been revived in recent months, led by Friends of the Library volunteers Damian Macey and Maury Miller who are now actively interviewing area residents on a regular basis.

These interviews are an invaluable community treasure; they have been uploaded to YouTube and many have also been transcribed.  To access these videos, please visit the library's genealogy department homepage.  Each interview has a link to the actual audio recording (via YouTube) and a link to the transcript (will open as PDF) if available. Assistance is still needed to transcribe many of the interviews. If interested, please contact the library.
