• The Nyssa Library received some very exciting news this week! They are the recipients of a Library Science Technology Act grant. This grant will enable them to complete the digitalization of their holdings of Nyssa Gate City Journal copies from 1954-1978. 

The process should be completed by summer 2020. You can check out the copies currently available by visiting the library web site at nyssacity.org/nyssa.library. There, you will find two buttons: one for the 1910-1936 issues and one for the 1937-1953 issues. These historic papers are a treasure trove of information about Nyssa. 

Summer reading is coming soon – “Universe of Stories” starts June 4 and is for all ages. There will be weekly prizes and a raffle. The summer reading calendar will be available in May. Stop by the library, get a calendar and open up the universe by reading.
