New Book on McKinney

We have received the book: McKinney.  This book is part of the Images of America series.  This is a photographic history of McKinney's past.  It contains photographs of the Historic Square, businesses, families, education, religion, and events.  There is information for each picture and where applicable, the people in the picture are named.
We have three copies of this book.  One will remain in the Reference section of the Genealogy area and the other two are available for check out.  One is at the Roy and Helen Hall Memorial Library and the other at the John and Judy Gay Library.  Come in and see if any of your relatives or friends are found in this book by Ryan Barnhart and Ryan Estes.
