Allan Shivers Library hosts reception celebrating Tyler County history

Tyler County Booster

The John and Rose Mary Bunch Reading Room will be the site for a book signing event on Wednesday, November 16th. The public is invited to attend between the hours of 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Copies of the new book, Tyler County, will be available for purchase, and members of the county Historical Commission and Heritage Society will be present to sign the book that they helped to produce. The event will feature several storytellers sharing a series of vignettes from county history. Additionally, there will be a display of maps that tell the story of Tyler County’s development across the centuries. Eleanor Holderman, who compiled the images and conducted research to write captions for the book, is seeking autographs from individuals with links to pictures in the book. As a member of the Tyler County Historical Commission, her goal is to make personal contacts with those who are connected to various phases of Tyler County history. Guests at the reception will be invited to join future efforts of Tyler County’s Historical Commission and Heritage Society who seek to preserve the county’s rich heritage. The new pictorial history book includes over 200 images and captions that offer a peak through our community’s window to see notable events of past times. The next chapters of our history are being lived out today and wait to be recorded.
