Date of Program: Now through May 4, 2014
2014 marks The Pearl Street
Branch Library’s 100th Anniversary!
In commemoration of this exciting event, the Pearl Street Library
Centennial Anniversary Committee is creating a Time Capsule that will be buried
at the Pearl Street Library.
Do you have any memories of
the Pearl Street Library that you would like to share with future
generations? You can now purchase a
“Time Capsule Memory Card” for $ 2.00 at both the Enfield Public Library and
Pearl Street Branch Library. On each
card there is a space for your name, address, family information, and a special
library memory. The cards will be
collected through May 4, where they will be put on display at the “100 Year
Celebration Reception,” held at the Pearl Street Library, before being placed
in the Time Capsule.
Don’t forget to check out the
many numerous events the Centennial Committee have planned for the exciting
year ahead, among them: “Book Discussions through the Decades” monthly book
chat, a birthday party, a town-wide scavenger hunt with a 100 year theme, a
marble tournament, a visit from Kandie Karle-the Edwardian Lady, “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.
