A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

The old sources confirm: No ‘s’ on Lyon

Written February 3rd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Though not, admittedly, among the burning issues of the day, how to spell Albany’s Lyon Street is occasionally in dispute. People tend to spell it with an “s” at the end of Lyon, but the “s” does not belong there.


Downtown discovery: Gems of the past

Written October 5th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Pretty much by chance the other day, I found myself in the basement room that holds the Oregon Collection at Albany’s Carnegie Library downtown. It’s the place to be if you’re interested in what happened in our town and state long before you and I got here.


Sidewalk name: Mystery no more

Written November 28th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

The mystery of the name in the sidewalk on Albany’s First Avenue — if a mystery it was —  has been cleared up, as far as I’m concerned.


Downtown library hours: Saturdays!

Written June 18th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

Good news for book readers, especially those living in West and North Albany and near downtown. For the first time in a long time, the downtown branch of the Albany Public Library will be open Saturdays this summer, starting June 25.


Too little space for all that stuff

Written February 17th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

It’s no big deal, obviously, but this may not be the best way to set up a public library’s book return for when the building is closed, especially if the closure extends over a three-day weekend.


Long live this library!

Written December 9th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Of all the things a city government must do, maintaining public parks and libraries ranks at the very top of the priority list, as far as I’m concerned. And today, a particular library has the spotlight here.
