1983 Catherine's postcard - April 14

Though we may have been to Susanville, California, don't think that we ever spent the night there.  Located in the northeast part of the state in Lassen County, it is a town of about 18,000 people, now home to the California High Desert State Prison.  It has a somewhat interesting library history in that it was the home of the Lassen County Library from 1915-1994 but the County closed the library in 1994 due to fiscal constraints.  Susanville then established it's own library district in 1994 and was able to acquire the collection and furnishing of the former county library, but not the building.  They opened in their own building in 1997.

Hi!  I just found this card in a book so took the hint that it was time to write!  We've been really busy wrapping up Elks work but should be done next week.  Got your letter today.  Our rhubarb is about ready to eat.  Part of it is going to seed.  What does that mean?  Interesting article about 24 hr. library & Wilm. plans.  Wendy is doing fine.  Her preschool went on a field trip to a farm.
Catherine, Gerry & Wendy
