Pre-1926 Meekins photos wanted
 
Do you have early 20th century photographs of the interior of Meekins Library that show the interior before the mezzanine level was added in 1926  hiding in your family albums? Do you know anyone who might have some early images?
Meekins Archivist Daria D’Arienzo (ddarienzo@me.com) is looking for visual evidence of how the rooms were laid out and decorated and where the original fixtures were placed. She is trying to build a photographic history of how Meekins has evolved. Exterior images are also welcome but she is particularly looking for interior views.
Please contact her directly at ddarienzo@me.com , at the desk at Meekins, or by phone at 413-538-6489.
