Lisbonm, Salem preservation groups to meet at Teagarden Acres

SALEM– Two groups with one purpose will join together from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday halfway between Lisbon and Salem to celebrate the preservation of the Shelton’s Grove dance hall and speaker’s pavilion erected in 1895. Currently known as Teagarden Acres the pavilion and grounds were once a mecca for city-slickers from New Lisbon, Salem and surrounding communities to get out to the “country” and go boating, picnicking, dancing and carousel riding. As many as 8,000 people in one day flocked to the annual “Harvest Home” picnic to hear famous speakers and enjoy bands and other entertainers. People from as far away as New York and Chicago would simply take the train right to Teagarden and be dropped off and whisked away by horse drawn surreys to the nearby Shelton’s Grove pavilion.

This special celebration of preservation will be the first time the two preservation groups have gotten together to share ideas and experiences. Those in attendance will be treated to a conversation by Bob Winn on the history of the Teagarden/Shelton’s Grove area from the pre-Civil War era to the current day. Old standard musical interludes will be provided by Mr. Kleinpeter on the violin. The day’s events are for the members and invited friends and guests of the two organizations.

The location coming from Salem is south on state Route 45, just a few hundred yards south of Teagarden Road on the right. From Lisbon, north on state Route 45 a few hundred yards south of Teagarden Road on the left.

Those attending are asked to bring a cover-dish and place setting.

LISBON–The Lepper Library will be participating in the nationwide initiative of encouraging the public to sign up for library cards during the month of September. During the month, the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every one signs up for their own library card. The Lepper Library promotes literacy for all ages and wants to ensure each patron has equal access to information and resources. The month of September is chosen due to the start of the school year.

The Lepper Library offers a Refer-A-Friend incentive during the month of September. The person referring and the person signing up for their new card will receive small prizes.

Anyone signing up for a card must bring their official Ohio ID. They will take it to the Circulation Desk and fill out a registration form. The library will then mail the new patron a postcard to confirm their permanent residence. When they bring back the postcard to the library they will receive their new Lepper Library card.

A card at the Lepper Library can bring many advantages to the card holder. With just a library card the new patron has access to thousands of books, movies, magazines and audiobooks. The Lepper Library also has Mobile Hotspots, cake pans, ukuleles and coloring books available to check out. A library card also grants access to digital materials through OverDrive (e-books, e-audiobooks, videos and magazines), Lynda.com (professional training videos) and Transparent Language Online (Foreign language learning). A free library card can help save a lot of money.

With a Lepper Library card in good standing the card also allows for use on the library’s public computers. Printing, faxing and scanning of documents are also included, fees apply with printing and faxing.
