The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center recently completed scanning a set of materials from Montgomery County Public Library.  Included were several photograph albums featuring students at Troy Elementary School building and playing with marionettes.  The albums belonged to Helen Poole, who taught the puppets class to sixth graders at Troy Elementary for many years.  The albums span the 1960s-1970s.
