|The Brookhaven Free Library Celebrates Its Centennial|
One hundred years ago, a small group of women met at 285 Beaver Dam Road to discuss the possible formation of a suffrage club. After discussion, it was decided that a Library Club would be more helpful to the community, and so, the Fireplace Library Club was formed. The club grew and changed with time, was granted a charter, and became the Brookhaven Free Library. It has grown from a private club of 63 members and 500 books, to an active, modern, Public Library with over 30,000 volumes and almost 5,000 registered cardholders. On Sunday, May 20th, the Library held a celebration for their Centennial. There was music, food and drink, as well as historical presentations and artifacts on hand. The community-created quilt was on display, along with lots of other fun events. Click to see photos from the Celebration.
