their office to the Museum. This will also allow the facility to be open
during normal business hours throughout the entire year. This means the
gold mine of treasures can be accessed at almost any time. Guided tours by
volunteers can also be arranged, which is exactly why Colleen has already
talked to various tourist groups about including it on the list of places to visit
in Iowa.
     “We can market Eagle Grove and Wright County as the place to come,”
she said.
     While it’s obvious money is needed to begin phase one of the three-
phase Museum project, there is so much more that community members can
do to help. Committee members and “worker bees” are always welcomed
and appreciated. The Historical Society agrees that in order to make this
work, money is only one part of the equation. There also needs to be people
to do cataloging, identify artifacts, work on a website, coordinate publicity,
do “road shows” for community groups…and the list goes on.
     “I hadn’t been in the Carnegie Library here for 30 years,” Colleen
admitted. “I was taken back on how beautiful it all really is once I got back
inside.”
     Colleen remembers and loves what the Carnegie Library used to be, but
she is excited about what the building could be in the future. Restoring the
facility is a way of keeping ahold of the past, while at the same time moving
into the future.
     “It’s such a technological world now…I just want to make sure and
preserve the way things used to be,” she said.
     If you are interested in joining the Historical Society, or would just like
to attend a meeting, they meet the second Monday of the month at 5 p.m.
at the Eagle Grove Memorial Library. For more details, feel free to call
Colleen at 448-4131.
