Marshall Public Library takes seriously its responsibility to act as a repository for local history. An important part of our Idaho Archives is the collection of yearbooks from Pocatello’s three high schools.
This collection gets regular use for a variety of reasons, whether it’s
research for an upcoming class reunion, providing picture identification for a minor looking to obtain a library card, or a simple trip down memory lane. Because we’re a public library, in the past these books have been set out for people to peruse with no restriction, but they’re becoming worn and it’s hard to find a replacement if a copy gets damaged. We would like to archive a copy of each yearbook to preserve this bit of history.
During the month of September, the library is asking for the citizens of Pocatello and Chubbuck to consider donating any unwanted high school annuals to the Idaho Archive collection so a back-up “archive” copy of each year can be put aside and a “browsing” copy can be left on the shelves. Please contact Trent at firstname.lastname@example.org or 232-1263 ext. 106 if you can help with this very special project.
