Summary The Boone County School Yearbook Collection consists of yearbooks for Belvidere and Boone County high schools, elementary schools, and middle schools. The bulk of the collection contains a complete series of Belvidere High School yearbooks from 1912-2013. Yearbooks of various dates from Belvidere North High School, Poplar Grove School, North Boone High School, Perry Elementary School, and more are also included in the collection.
Original Location Ida Public Library.
Source The yearbooks have been donated to the library and acquired by library staff throughout many years. There is no specific donation paperwork on any of the yearbooks, though it is noted at the front of each North Boone High School yearbook that they were donated by Dianne Loft. The Poplar Grove School yearbook is also marked as donated by the DeKalb Public Library. There is evidence, in the form of inscriptions in the front of some of the Belvidere High School yearbooks, that some were donated by the high school directly to the library as early as 1941, perhaps earlier. Others seem to have been the property and donations of individuals, as many are inscribed and autographed. In recent years, the Ida Public Library has purchased both Belvidere High School yearbooks and Belvidere North High School yearbooks directly from the schools, adding them to the collection every August.
