History of the Lumpkin County Library by Diane Bates; 9 Feb 17; 7pm @ Community House

Post date: Jan 27, 2017 3:5:25 PM

Lumpkin County Library marks its 100th anniversary this year. Diane Bates, President of the Friends of the Lumpkin County Library, will speak on the history of our library.

Library patrons may have noticed the corner fireplace (a fireplace? in a library?) with a portrait of a man hanging above it. What many people may not know is his name, and why his picture hangs there.

We welcome everyone to join us to hear how our library was born, and how it has grown from a few donated books in 1917 to its present size – and a bonus look into the future – a proposed larger, more diversified library building, now in the planning stages.

Come, and bring a friend.

7:00 p.m., Thursday, February 9, 2017 at the Community House, 111 North Park Street
