A Place Called "Library" Revisited
There is a community in Pennsylvania that is named "Library". It was named in honor of the first library established in the area by John Moore in 1833. I wrote about Library, PA in a blog post on February 4, 2009. I recently added a couple of postal items related to Library, PA to my collection of postal librariana. The first is an envelope mailed to Deacon Joseph Philips in Library, PA on February 17, 1862. The second is a postal card mailed from Library, PA on January 12, 1940. The message side of the postal card provides an explanation for the name of the Library Post Office which was established in 1842. Both items are shown above. My Library History Buff website has a page that show several other postal items related to Library, PA.
