Do You Have A Book On The History Of Nipigon?

You don't have to work long at our local Public Library before you hear that question coming at you.  Some year the Librarian's face may light up with a smile and answer, "We sure do!"
 We have come close with the Kelso-Demers' book, "Our Living Heritage,The Glory of the Nipigon" but that book is just the tip of the iceberg, giving little teasing chapters on our vast and magnificent history. It will make you look for more.

However, until that day, the following list of books will give you a sense of our area's history, a feeling for the times, the background setting for our past.

This list had the heading "Buzz's Shelf". That name hails from the early '70's when I was librarian and Buzz could never re-locate the books he read and liked and wanted to recommend to others.

Every summer I would pull these books from their normal shelf spaces, place them all together in a conspicuous location and tape a "Buzz's Shelf" label under them.  This satisfied Buzz but frustrated the smart card-catalogue-user to no end.
