Pearl Street Centennial Celebration – Book Discussions through the Decades

Date of Program:  Monday, July 7, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library 

2014 marks The Pearl Street Branch Library’s 100th Anniversary!  Please join us in our year long Pearl Street Branch Centennial Celebration. 

The thought provoking series, “Book Discussions through the Decades,” continues with Don’t Go Near the Water by William Brinkley on Monday, July 7th at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library.  Don’t Go Near the Water is a 1956 episodic novel broken into ten chapters, each telling a story about the various PR officers stationed on the fictional island of Tulura, and six sequentially numbered interludes.  Special guest facilitator, Michael Helechu, is a Lieutenant Colonel (ret.), for the United States Air Force.  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 fascinating program on the history of marbles, a time capsule, “Delving into 1914 and Beyond”-presented by the Enfield Historical Society, a marble tournament, “meet Andrew Carnegie”-with Richard Clark, an outdoor movie, special displays, and much more!  Be on the lookout for event listings via email, press, library signage, and our library web page.

All programs at the Pearl Street Branch Library and Enfield Public Library are free and all are welcome.  To register for upcoming programs and events, please visit the Circulation Desk at either library, or call 860-253-6433 (Pearl Street Branch Library) or 860-763-7512 (Enfield Public Library).   For further information, you may also email the Anniversary Committee at: PearlStreetLibrary100@gmail.com, or visit the library webpage: www.enfieldpubliclibrary.org.
