Fall Story Time 2015

Happy 97th Birthday to Mrs. Oma Lee Jacobs!

Oma Lee Jacobs

September 22nd marks a special day for one of Sallie Logan Public Library’s most unique patrons.  Mrs. Oma Lee Jacobs is celebrating her 97th birthday!  Mrs. Jacobs was born on September 22, 1918, making her one of the library’s “most mature” patrons.  Jacobs was raised on a Carbondale farm and she attended Southern Illinois Normal College in Carbondale.  Her husband’s job took the family all over the world.  Upon his retirement, the family settled back down in Murphysboro.  Jacobs states she has been a patron of the library ever since!  Jacobs’ son drives her to the library where she browses the collection for her favorite books and usually checks out quite a stack for her leisure reading. She has always felt at home at the library and is happy that it has grown and become better organized over the years.  Jacobs has read all of Robert Ludlum’s books and enjoys a variety of genres.  She is pictured here with some of her recent selections.  Happy Birthday Mrs. Jacobs!
