James V Brown Library @ Christmas Time

LOAD Day 12: Landmarks. Lets see what can I do this week :) I made a list and then I decided on the James V Brown Library. I had taken some pictures of the library at Christmas time for my December Daily and I knew I had a few extra photos I could use to tie in the landmark story with something current too :) Research the library abit to have the history part of it for this layout and I found a then picture to go with the now picture I had.
It hasn't changed much over the years. I found this great sketch to use over at Scrap Much?

 This is the February 5 sketch
The left side housed the information about how the library became to be and still today stays true to it's original mission. Picture of the bronze nutcracker
The right side holds the 2 other Christmas pictures, one of a statue and one of the tree in the rotunda.
Close up of the title work with holly brads, I used a square doily on the layout. Most of the layout came from my current counterfeit kit Color Splash

My personal journaling :) This is one of my favorite LOAD prompts right now, the Landmarks. I have learned so much about my city in just a few of them that this is going to be an ongoing project. I found a guided walking tour and would like to take it in the spring for my own photos of the historical places here in Williamsport, PA and a theme album just on the something that could be looked back on by generations.

  5. I love the LOAD challenges Tina, you come up with such interesting layouts! I am loving this library, but loving even more the history of it. It's a beautiful building and I'm glad they remained true to how it looked when it was built. I also love reading that it stayed true to how it was ran as well. Loved seeing the pretty Christmas decor too. Love learning about your town!!! Hugs, Brenda
