Simsbury Free Library Quarterly

The Search For Shamrocks in Simsbury (and other stories)

Volume 4 Issue 1 March 1997

A stroll through the old cemetery across from St. Bernard’s Church in Tariffville is a step back in time to the days when ambitious emigrants from Ireland came to the Simsbury area in search of work and new home in America.

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.
