My volunteer, Monk Moore, died this year and his family donated his vintage padlock collection to the library. Coming this January there will be a display of the collection in the first floor display case.  The collection has padlocks dating back to the Civil War and represents a large swath of the companies that made locks in the United States with even a couple from England and  a few that were hand-forged. So come out and take a looksy.
