Welcome to 1925 / 2021

This year, 2021, sees the release of works created in 1925 into the public domain in the United States. Many of these titles are of significant literary merit including F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and Sinclair Lewis’s Arrowsmith. In the spirit of last year’s efforts to add to the number of titles available to the public we have digitized 5 titles from Distinctive Collections that are now available in the public domain for your enjoyment and research needs.

First is an brief history of St. Agath’s Church in Meadville Pa:
