Lori Vicker remembers the Orphan Trains at the Pomeroy Public Library

At 2:00 p.m. Thursday, March 28th, the Pomeroy Public Library will host educator Lori Vicker, who travels Iowa sharing her knowledge of the Orphan Train Movement in the U.S., circa 1854-1929.

Her presentation includes vintage clothing similar to that worn by westward orphans, and a bibliography that highlights non-fiction and historical fiction about orphan trains. This program is free and open to the public.

We hope that you will mark your calendars and make plans to attend.   As a side note, the library has several books on this very interesting subject available for checkout.
