Would you like to see more historic prints of Brisbane like the one above? Well you will soon have your chance, as Arcadia Publishing has just published the newest in their Images of America series, simply titled, Brisbane. The book was co-authored by Dolores Gomez and Christy Thilmany, both former staff members of the Brisbane Library (for 27 and 31 years respectively). Thanks to them, a stunning collection of vintage photographs have been compiled and brought to life with their supportive narrative. The books are presently being shipped to CA and should be available at area retailers by the end of next week (or you can order online by clicking here). Stay tuned for updates as to where Brisbane will be available for you to purchase.
Lastly, the official ballot box made its way to City Hall this morning...so remember to vote, or register to vote if you haven't done so already! You can also pick up a Voter Registration Form in the lobby at City Hall (next to the Finance Counter). On it you can specify if you'd like to be a permanent absentee voter, where you will then automatically receive an absentee ballot for every election in which you are entitled to vote. Once you have that filled out, come down to City Hall anytime before or on the day of the election, November 3rd, and drop it in the ballot box (located outside the City Clerk's office). If you have any questions, please call 508-2113 or e-mail our City Clerk, Sheri Spediacci, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for making our democracy stronger by participating in elections!
