Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Rangers,
Thank you for allowing me to visit the library. My favorite site was the Quaker Meetinghouse. Herbert Hoover had to be quiet and sit still in Quaker meetings. On special occasions, special meetings were held. There, the windows were closed and women would talk privately and so would the men. If babies would cry, they’d be sent to the cry room. Boys would sit with their mothers if they couldn’t sit still. Women sat on separate sides for independence. Thank you for your time and effort!
Sincerely, Nicole

Dear Herbert Hoover Library & Rangers,
Thank you for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite exhibit was the Quaker Meetinghouse. I learned that the women and men sat on different sides. I like the Statue of the Goddess of Isis because she looked into your future. It was a gift to Herbert Hoover. Thank you for letting me eat inside rather than outside in the cold.
Sincerely, Colton

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Rangers,
Thank you for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite part was the inside tour because I learned about the first radio President Hoover got to use. Thank you for giving me the tour.
Sincerely, Brett

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Ranger,
Thank you for allowing me to tour the library. I liked the gravesight, but my favorite was the Quaker Meetinghouse. I learned that women and men are in separate rooms and there is a cry room for little babies or kids.
Thank you for letting us eat in the auditorium, since it was too cold outside to eat. The auditorium was like a movie theater.
Sincerely, Alexus

Thank you for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite was the school house because I learned that they had two bowls to wash their hands with a bar of soap. Thank you for your time and showing us around.

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Ranger,
Thank you for letting me visit the library. My favorite spot was the Quaker meeting place. I learned that the women and men sit on the OPPOSITE sides and the women would have their own meeting and the men would also. The doors and windows would close and there would be a little slot where they would slide notes through and tell the other side what they were talking about. I also remember the school he went to. It was a one room school for 1st – 8th grades. I also remember his house. It was so small. I wouldn’t be able to live in it.
Thank you for your time!
Sincerely, Emma
P.S. When we got back to Moravia, my teacher said that we should each live in his house for a week with our family. Thank you again!

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Ranger,
Thank you for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite thing was Isis because I learned it was a gift for saving many people from starving in Belgium. Thank you for your time.

Deni December 7, 2011 at 11:19 am

Dear Herbert Hoover Library & Ranger,
Thank you for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite place was the Quaker meeting place. I learned that they didn’t have a preacher so the men and women had to sit quietly in their seats and wait for the Spirit to make them feel like they had something important to say. Another thing was that the men and women were separated but if a little boy was not old enough to sit quietly and not talk, the little boy would sit by his mother. Thank you for putting in your time to lead me on the tour.
Sincerely, Deni

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Rangers,
Thank you so much for allowing me to come visit the library. My favorite part of the museum and the tour was going to the Quaker Meetinghouse. I didn’t know that you had to sit still the whole time, and that women and men had to sit apart. What’s funny about it was handing the notes through the door. Thank you for all the great details and the understanding.
Sincerely, Jessy

Abbe December 7, 2011 at 11:24 am

Dear Herbert Hoover Library Staff & Ranger,
Thank you for allowing me to come to the library. My favorite part of the library was the house. The house was very tiny. Herbert Hoover had one sister, one brother, and a mom and dad, plus him, so there were a lot of people in that house. I remember the names of his sister and brother. Thank you for everything you did.
Sincerely, Abbe
