Thanks to LSTA,  The Rhodes Room’s Digital Projects Team was able to present this list of our vertical file headings.

This project is 100% supported with federal LSTA funds made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.The North Carolina ECHO (Exploring Cultural Heritage Online)program is the World Wide Web's doorway to the special collections of North Carolina's libraries, archives, and museums (http://www.ncecho.org/). NC ECHO participates in a digitization grant program that supports collaborative digitization projects among the state's libraries and partner cultural institutions and creates a more in-depth and wider assortment of online resources for the use of the public. Guidelines for the NC ECHO Grant Program can be found at http://statelibrary.dcr.state.nc.us/lsta/lsta.htm.

These folders contain newspaper clippings, pamphlets, and other published information about subjects specific to Catawba County and its history. The Biography folders are composed primarily of newspaper articles about notable Catawbans. These files were compiled by Mrs. Evelyn Deal Rhodes during her long career (twenty-plus years) with the Catawba County Public Library system.

We have also—where possible—linked other websites on the same subject. For example:if you are looking for information on Bunker Hill Bridge, you may first click on the “B” finding aid, then find Bunker Hill Bridge.Below that, you will see citations of articles, web links, and occasionally photographs of the bridge.(We will continue to update this site as staff time allows. Thank you for your patience.)

***For those folders not yet posted to the site, further information can be found by e-mailing the Rhodes Room Staff at afloyd@catawbacountync.gov
