Local History Exhibit

A new exhibit featuring the history of the
Penrose Community Library is on display in the local history section of the library. The exhibit was curated by Sherry Johns, local Penrose historian. The display features photos of the library since its start at the Bravo Realty office, its relocation to Alex Van Acker's dental office, its first real home in the Penrose Park and to our most recently constructed library located at Dawson and 7th.

Sherry Johns has been a long time volunteer and supporter of the library and has served in the past as President of the Friends of the Library. She currently has two published books on Penrose history including, "The Forgotten Cemeteries of Beaver Creek" and a second edition of "Pioneer Women of Beaver Creek". Both are available for sale at the library.
