Ex Libris: Essex Library News through the Decades


Since 1978, the Essex Library Association has published Ex Libris, a regular newsletter to keep patrons and members up-to-date of what’s happening at the library.

The newsletter has had many different formats and features over the years; the names and faces in the articles change over time too. The unifying theme throughout is the dedication the Essex community has for supporting the Essex Library. 

This exhibit features a selection of issues through the decades, from 1978 to today. To read more issues of Ex Libris, visit the full collection
