What We Have Been Up To!
Since May, we have been busy organizing and taking inventory of everything we have. It's been an adventure going through many unique collections and preserving the history for years to come.
Below: Our new color and number coordinated cabinets. You are welcome to come review these items in the Library upon request!
Above: Inside each cabinet, each box has been individually labeled with what is inside.
We have also been working on expanding our collection of West Lafayette history. Recently donated are artifacts and personal files of Rehmer who oversaw The University Lutheran Church during the 1930s-1980s. These have been processed and are ready to use for research!
Above: Reverend Rehmer collection! This collection includes church foundation papers, personal correspondence and notes, personally addressed books, and several Purdue football bowl programs!
Stay tuned for more projects and updates from the West Lafayette Public Library History and Archives!
