Birthday Books (and other stories)

Volume 3 Issue 5 December 1996

Among the treasures in the Simsbury Free Library Collections are two birthday books belonging to the members of the Winslow family. Birthday books kept track of the events in the lives of family and friends especially their birthdays in a small book that could be kept at one’s desk. It appears to be the custom for the owners of these books to have the actual person sign their name on the date to be remembered.
