Another Fort Ligonier Days has come and gone, but this year included a happy note for the Library and the Pennsylvania Room. Both the Staff and Friends of the Pennsylvania Room each participated in the 2010 Fort Ligonier Days Window Display contest. The theme this year was "Community Spirit Past and Present."
The Friends of the Pennsylvania Room's window took 1st Place! The window is titled, "Reading, 'Riting and 'Rithmetic: One-Room Schools of Ligonier,"and is on display at The Frame Place. (The Frame Place is located at 110 N. Market Street in Ligonier.)
"The American Chestnut: Lost Giant of our Past" was put together by Pennsylvania Room staff and is showcased outside in one of the library's display windows. The exhibit will remain in the window until the end of October.
We hope you'll stop by and view our windows. All together there were a total of four participants in the contest. In addition to our two displays, the Ligonier Valley Historical Society and the Toy Box each did a window. The Historical Society's "Scouting" display took 2nd Place and is located in the On the Diamond Antiques store window. The Toy Box's "Community Spirit is on the Diamond" took 3rd Place and can be found in their store window.
