CARL JUNCTION, MO.--- Many of us have fond memories of being read a children's book before bed, but one area woman has thousands to choose from. Oma Nichols has been collecting children's books since her childhood. She has several thousand in her collection and it is on display at the Carl Junction Community Center. Oma says much of her collection is in storage and it's nice to see so many books on display. 

"Every bed in my house has a container underneath it all. I have four book cases, and I have some boxes I get creative with," said Oma Nichols, Children's Book Collector. 

The Chamber of Commerce is always looking for more peoples collections to put in the window. If you'd like to learn more, you can call  (417) 649-8846.
