50th Anniversary Celebration Events
50 Years of Service: Celebrating the History of the Grundy Library (exhibit)
Due to popular demand the exhibit, 50 Years of Service: Celebrating the History of the Grundy Library, will continue at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street. The exhibit highlights the last 50 years of service provided by the Grundy Library, Museum, and Foundation to the greater Bristol Borough community using maps, sketches, paintings, photographs, and other visuals. Visitors will travel by decade through numerous memorable events, programs, and classes enjoyed by community members of all ages, and learn how the newly formed Grundy Foundation developed plans for the Library and Museum. Many visitors seeing the exhibit have remarked that it is a trip down memory lane and requires more than one visit to appreciate.
While supplies last, 50th Anniversary canvas tote bags will be available for purchase. The exhibit continues through Thursday, December 29, 2016 during regular Library hours (Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; and Friday & Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
