What do librarians do on their days off? Hope you didn't answer "read". So obvious! In the case of one Schuylkill County librarian, days off are for dressing up as Civil War historical figure, Clara Barton. Maureen Costello, the librarian at Marion High School, will be bringing her alter-ego to the Schuylkill County Historical Society, 305 N. Centre Street, Pottsville on Wednesday, March 30 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Costello's presentation "Women of the Civil War: Clara Barton Founder of the American Red Cross" will include full costume and props along with the educational views and experiences of Barton.
Admission is free for SCHS members and $5 for the public. RSVP by March 28 by calling 570-622-7540.
