Please join us in our year long Pearl Street Branch Centennial
The thought provoking series,
“Book Discussions through the Decades,” continues with Andrew Carnegie by David

Branch Library. Andrew Carnegie is the
most current biography of the man behind the funds to build the Pearl Street
Library. Please note that you are
welcome to read any other source available to familiarize yourself with this
most interesting man. Special guest
facilitator, Dr. Frank (Doc) Taylor, is the former History Department Head at
Enfield High School. Refreshments will
be served at the discussion and copies of the book are available for check-out
at either library location.
Additionally, the Centennial Anniversary
Committee have planned numerous events for the exciting year ahead, among them:
a birthday party, a town-wide scavenger hunt with a 100 year theme, a marble
tournament, “meet Andrew Carnegie”-with Richard Clark, an outdoor movie, a time
capsule, special displays, and much more!
