Diary of a Library, part of TCPL’s Sesquicentennial exhibit 150 Years and Counting, opens on Friday, April 4, 2014

Diary of a Library: A Community Card Catalog of Stories, Memories and Pictures is an ongoing project launched by Barbara Page and Sally Grubb to tell TCPL’s 150 year story through drawings, poems, stories and photographs.  It is part of the TCPL Sesquicentennial Art Exhibit 150 Years and Counting.

The exhibit features a 15-drawer, repurposed card catalog, filled with 3 x 5 cards submitted by community members, library staff, trustees and friends which together add up to a colorful picture of 150 years of library service to the community.

Drawer topics include Library stories, History of TCPL, History of Libraries, Favorite Books, Artists’ Books, The next 150 Years, People at the Library, Friends of the Library, Art at the Library, Library programs and events, Children at the Library.

Contributions to this community card catalog are welcome and cards will be accepted and added throughout the year. For information about adding a card go to Diary of a Library.

Come and browse.  See what you friends and neighbors think of TCPL.  Add you own comments and participate in Diary of a Library and TCPL’s Sesquicentennial Celebrations.  For information about other Sesquicentennial events go to 150 Anniversary.

A special opening reception for all the exhibits included in 150 Years and Counting is being held in conjunction with Gallery Opening Night, Friday, April 4, from 5 to 8 PM.

Entry to the Library after 5 PM is through the BorgWarner Community Room door behind the bus shelter on Green Street.
