During the mild winter of 1891, when the Old Town Public Library was first established, it is reported that there were flowers in bloom. Bob Diebold wrote in his 1991 Times article, which celebrated 100 years of library service, that although “the flowers passed, as flowers do, the library was to stay and flourish.” In this, our 120th year since the Old Town Public Library was founded, and our 20th year since the Tabitha Spruce King Wing was added, we have cause for celebration. December is the month to commemorate our Library’s Birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with an Open House and Tea! Join us on December 13th, between the hours of 2 pm and 7 pm for delicious refreshments; to enjoy the festive decorations; and to take a moment to view and perhaps purchase a book as a “birthday gift” for the library. Later, we invite you to attend a tree lighting and sing-along with the Club Discovery Kids that will take place on the library lawn at 6 pm.
