Spoons, Spoons and more Spoons -- Library Exhibit
Coming into the library, just past the gate, is a display case full of SPOONS. The spoons are from the collection of Marjorie Netzler, the mother of Ms Dana Kelly, the Baron-Forness Library Secretary. There are round spoons, oblong spoons, decorated spoons, John Deer spoons, mussel shell shaped spoons and, well just you come and see. Among the spoons are books, From hand to mouth, or, How we invented knives, forks, spoons, and chopsticks, & the table manners to go with them by James Cross Giblin, Six silver spoons with pictures by Robert Quackenbush and Eight centuries of European knives, forks, and spoons : an art collection by Klaus Marquardt. The books were chosen by Dr. Andrea Wyman, Curriculum Materials Librarian.
