Book Brigade Chain
In March of 2000, the city held a Book Brigade to move the books from the old warehouse location to the new library. Over 1,500 citizens participated. Help the Library recreate that historic event by adding a link to our CHAIN OF BOOKS. Write your favorite book (or two) on a strip of paper and it will be added to our chain. Let's see if we can reach 1,500 links!
Available all month long upstairs at the Reference Desk.
