The Back Mountain Memorial Library invites you to an Open House Celebration of the newest addition to our library! The beautiful wall sculpture, the "Giving Evergreens," will be officially unveiled on October 26th, between 2:00 and 5:00pm. This artistic rendering will provide a unique opportunity to Celebrate, Honor, or Remember individuals, groups and even businesses which have touched our lives.
Join us in celebrating this event and the Back Mountain Memorial Library's presence in our community. Historical memorabilia will be on display in the library's Reference Room, including many names and faces of people who helped to make the library what it is today. You may even recognize some of these individuals.
There will be a short program at 2:30pm, with remarks by Board President Ron Moran, local representatives and comments by three patrons of the library. Light refreshments will be served.
