From the Director’s Notebook
Welcome to the Sulphur Springs Public Library. My name is Hope Cain and I am your Director. I am so pleased to be here and working with the wonderful staff. Karmon, Lolitha, Omar, Dillon and I are all here to serve you. We also partner with the downtown area and local businesses by implementing programs to better our community.
The St. Clair Music Box collection is a fascinating piece of local history with many one-of-a-kind boxes from around the world, in recognition of Mr. Leo St. Clair’s love of music boxes. L.M. (Buddy) and Katie Sinclair have collected a history of their lives from 1915 childhood to marriage and the hardships of World War II. Mrs. Sinclair has graciously donated many items of substantial worth and of sentimental value chronicling her life including framed photos and artifacts, menus, letters, medals, tickets, traveling memorabilia, articles and an assortment of books, some of which she wrote herself.
Sulphur Springs Public Library has a large collection of the newest fiction releases in hardcover, large print and audio.
