What’s New

Scrapbooks and Newspapers from the High Point Museum Added to DigitalNC

September 4, 2015

Ten new scrapbooks by the High Point Woman’s Club and a number of Point-Crest Newspapers, a periodical published by the High Point Weaving Company and Hillcrest Throwing Company, have been digitized and uploaded to DigitalNC. The scrapbooks give details of the club’s activities throughout the years 1957 to 1958 and 1961 to 1971.

The Point-Crest newspapers cover the years 1945 to 1947 and, as the product of the companies listed above, much of the content is related to the textile industry and the doings of these particular companies. However, the newspaper is not all business and work. The paper notes extracurricular activities in which the companies were involved as well, such as the Hillcrest Girls’ Softball Team, who won their league championship.

Attention Book Clubbers!

August 28, 2015

We need your help!

We are going to tackle the job of creating a list of all the book clubs that meet in High Point outside the Library’s clubs.

If you are a member of a book club in High Point, we want to include your club. We will not share club information with the public unless your club authorizes us to do so for membership purposes. We will use this to alert area book clubs about Library events, including author visits, community read programs, book clubs, and to announce any new services that would be of interest to book clubs.

Please fill out this form if you want your Book Club included on our list: https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07ebfir7rzeceef687&oseq=&c=&ch=


If you have any questions about this, please contact Julie Raynor at 883-3093 or julie.raynor@highpointnc.gov to be included in the list.

 

Thanks so much! We want Your Club to be “in the know” about what’s going on at Your Library!
