All of this construction around here is cementing our dream of a bigger library. But with this new library, parts of the Haish Memorial Library building will be gone forever to make way for some beautiful renovations. Take the historic tour of the Haish building while you still can.
Enter through the Oak Street main entrance and meet at the fireplace by 6:30 p.m. to enjoy this in-depth tour. This tour will last about an hour, depending on how many questions you have about the library.
There is no need to sign-up for this FREE event, just drop-in! If you would like to schedule a group, please email email@example.com to do so.
