50 Years of Service: Celebrating the History of the Grundy Library (exhibit)

The public is invited to the opening of the exhibit, 50 Years of Service: Celebrating the History of the Grundy Library, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street. This interactive exhibit highlights the last 50 years of service provided by the Grundy Library, Museum, and Foundation to the greater Bristol Borough community.  With a pictorial review, visitors will travel by decade through the numerous memorable events, programs, and classes enjoyed by community members of all ages. Learn how the newly formed Grundy Foundation developed plans for the Library and Museum, see film footage from the 1966 Library grand opening, and learn about the history of Bristol libraries prior to the Grundy construction. Through accompanying displays, see the evolution of library services and how technology has affected the Library. To commemorate the 50th anniversary, visitors can add their messages to a fabric weaving for the time capsule project, leave their wishes for the future on book plates, and create a bookmark and journal to take home. The exhibit continues through Monday, October 31st 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.).

Here are the details: visit the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street, register for the event, and choose a recipe from among the three books selected for the fourth discussion – Holidays. Staff will photocopy your selected recipe, giving you a copy as a participant and keeping a copy on-hand to avoid duplication.
