Color me Pottstown

Some people like to view Pottostown through rose-colored lenses.
The old library building and
Pottstown Roller Mills are featured.

But now, thanks to the Friends of the Pottstown Regional Public Library, you can view Pottstown through any colored lens you want -- as long as you're willing to color it yourself.

For the third time in history, coinciding with another of Pottstown's birthdays, you can buy a coloring book that features Pottstown's (yes, I'm going to say it) colorful history.

Drawn by Gail McVicker, the book was assembled free of charge by the American Association of University Women.
Mrs. Smith's Pies is
featured as well.

All the Friends of the Library had to do was pay for the publication.

They now have about 1,000 of the books that are for sale for $3 at the book sale counter in the library building.

The proceeds from the sale will -- what else? -- benefit the library operations.

Already, about $100-worth of coloring books have been sold.

Hurry down and get your copy today, and support your local library at the same time.

You can even color in a rendering of the old Ringing Rocks Trolley
