Our friends over at the Lackawanna Valley Digital Archives (LVDA) have just announced a new digital collection of local history materials:
Celebrating Our Towns—Lackawanna County Centennial Books and Community Histories is a collection of books honoring Lackawanna county towns, townships, boroughs, cities and areas. These books were published by local authors and centennial groups to celebrate their towns. This wonderful collection was made possible by a grant from the Willary Foundation.
One of our favorites is the Historical Booklet and Guide from Scranton’s Diamond Jubilee and Centennial celebration in 1941. Nearby towns represented in the collection include Archbald, Carbondale, Clarks Summit, Dunmore, Olyphant, and Throop, among several others.
