A View of Reference
As a Reference Librarian I always love to look at old pictures of public library Reference Departments. In this case its my own. This photo comes from the History of the Scranton Public Library archive. Last week there was a post of the circulation desk and this week a look at the Scranton Public Library Reference Room. Based on the style of hat the woman is wearing I believe we may be looking at the 1920s or early 30s. I would like to point out that while the chairs aren't here anymore one of the tables can still be found in the department. If you are in Scranton or live in the area please come into the library its an architectural gem!!
