Our Lament for On South Mountain

 (sung to the tune of Where Have All the Flowers Gone)

Where have all our copies gone?
          Long time passing          
Where have all our copies gone?
Long time ago
Where have all our copies gone?
They've been taken, (almost) every one
When will they ever return?
When will they ever return?   

Does someone you know have a long overdue library copy of the book On South Mountain, by David Cruise?  Do you?

HELP!! Over the years, almost all of the library's copies of On South Mountain have disappeared!  They weren't stolen, exactly.  They were legitimately signed out from the library, but then never returned.  Patrons have moved and contact information is outdated. Please help us -- we need them back. The book is no longer in print, and with the publication of the new book Our Daily Bread by Lauren Davis, there is renewed interest in this dark chapter of Annapolis Valley's past. 

If you are in possession of one of these books, please return it to us.  If an acquaintance/friend of yours has it, please implore him/her to slide it in the outside book return slot of one of our libraries some night.
Or maybe you have a copy you're willing to donate? If so, please see library staff, or contact
