During our show he also pointed out that Southwest Jamestown around 1910 to 1920 was the site of a ski jump and bobsled course.

Also on our show the library’s, Development Director, Bill Kennedy said the library is still looking for more “library stories,” from the public to be included in the upcoming 2019, 100 year anniversary of the library in Jamestown.  The stories should be between 300 and 500 words telling what libraries mean to that individual and their families.
