It has been a long time coming. It’s finally here. Thanks to a generous donation in memory of Adele and Harold Taylor, the Peabody Township Library has started a website where anybody can digitally search the Peabody Gazette Bulletin. To access the site, go to the website listed below and follow the directions.
You can also find a link to this website on the right side of this page under the caption “links” and then “Digital Archive of Peabody Township Library”
Currently, only papers from July 2004 through December 2009 are available. Keep an eye on this site because during 2013, it will grow substantially as additional papers are added. It is hoped that the entire history of the Peabody Gazette Bulletin from 1874 through 2012 will be available to digital researchers around the world before Christmas 2013!
Other items to add to this site are being considered. If you have suggestions, please e-mail the library at firstname.lastname@example.org
The first Food Safety Certification class will be offered at the Peabody Township Library on Monday, September 26, 2011. The class uses the ServSafe food safety instruction developed by the National Restaurant Association and distributed by the Kansas Restaurant and Hospitality Association. The class will be taught by the Library Director, Rodger Charles who has been a certified food safety instructor since 2008. The class teaches many areas of food handling and safety tips to prevent food becoming contaminated and decreasing the likelihood of food born illnesses. The class is recommended for anyone working in the food service industry. Upon successful completion of the class, and passing the required written test, participants will receive a certificate in food safety which is valid for 3 years and recognized in all 50 states. The class will be taught by appointment only. If you are interested in participating in the food safety training, contact Library Director Rodger Charles for pricing and availability.
