TCPL's Sesquicentennial Exhibits are still on display throughout the Library

Diary of a Library: A Community Card Catalog of Pictures, Memories and Stories will continue on display in the Avenue of the Friends through the end of 2014. 

Have you checked out our Sesquicentennial card Catalog Diary of a Library yet?  Come to TCPL to see this wonderful, creative card catalog which has new cards added to it almost daily. Check the drawer of Library Stories for some fascinating memories. Or look at the cards created by our many young patrons who are totally uninhibited about what they will put on paper.  Many new artists books have been added too and the Histories of the Friends of the Library as well as TCPL keep growing. You can also add your own card.  Tell us what the Library means to you.  What is your favorite book or favorite Library activity. Add to our 150th Anniversary Card Catalog and be a part of our history. 

You still have time to view the fascinating display of Artists in the Archives – A Collection of Card Catalogs which will remain at the Library until June 1.  Feel free to browse the two card catalogs and write your comments in the book provided with the "Alternet."
