Harriet Berard and Julia Walter of the library’s Board of Trustees are coordinating the event, which will feature proclamations from regional legislators and dignitaries as well as food and entertainment common in 1921 when the library was founded. All members of The Community Library’s service area are invited to join the celebration of the library’s first 100 years and learn more about plans for the library’s future. 

The staff and Board of Trustees remain dedicated to extending the best library services to our Community. We look forward to you joining us in celebration.

2021 marked 100 years of service for The Community Library. Due to an increase in COVID cases in 2021 this event was postponed.
