School Library representing local, national and international studies

In 1968, the J.I. Case company donated their statue of Old Abe on a globe to Case High School and retired their trademark logo in 1969. Case students gave the battered statue loving care and painted it. To this day it holds a place of honor in our school standing in our Case school library.
