URBANA -- Want to get an up-close look at our local history? Then The Urbana Free Public Library is a must-visit this weekend.

In connection with the library's 140th anniversary, the Champaign County Archives (http://urbanafreelibrary.org/tags/champaign-county-historical-archives), housed and cared for by the Urbana Free Public Library, will bring out some rarely-seen historical momentos for the public to enjoy. The collection includes old photographs and artifacts, some of which date back to the days when some of our cities were one-horse towns!
