High school annuals sought

ANDERSON — One of the much-sought-after items in the Madison County History Center’s Nicholson Memorial Library are high school annuals from county schools. Currently, the center exhibits one annual in the library with a backup, when available, maintained in storage.

There are a few gaps in the collection that could be filled by generous donors. Right now the center needs Highland High School annuals from the following years: 1959 through 1961, 1964, 1966 through 1968, 1970, 1971, 1976, 1984, 1997 and 2007 through 2009.

Drop them off at the center any Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at 15 W. 11th St.
