About Virtual Exhibits

In these exhibits we try to showcase breadth of our collections under subjects in alphabetical order. We try to exhibit all items represent the subject within the reasonable numbers. Thus we might omit less important items and or you may find the same items represented under more than one subject. These exhibits in closely related printed forms are available for you to see at Stinson Beach Library as volumes of SBHS Index Books.

As you view the Virtual Exhibit note the accession numbers with A representing Archive Collections, L representing Library Collections, OB represent Object Collections and Photographic Collections have no letter attached.

We like you to read through and let us know of any omissions and/or errors.
