Page from July, 1953

A stark reminder of the segregation era in North Carolina, the Wilson County Negro Library ledger can now be perused online at DigitalNC.  It is an informative window into the  sometimes separate economy that existed during that period.

Here is what it contains (as listed in the metadata):

Categories include checks, bank (deposits and checks), general ledger, salaries, income tax, social security, N.C. Department of Revenue, books, periodicals, binding, audio visuals, library supplies, furniture & equipment, rent & building maintenance, insurance, bookmobile operation, travel, postage, miscellaneous, book processing charge, and cast surplus.
