Ligonier (PA) Valley Library 65th Anniversary Celebration

LIGONIER (PA) VALLEY LIBRARY 65TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

     Men, women, a young girl, and Abraham Lincoln, all adorned in period costumes, wove their way through a crowd attending the 65th anniversary celebration of the Ligonier Valley Library on May 3, 2011. The celebration in Ligonier, Pennsylvania, included both the unveiling of the Pennsylvania Room’s Historic Photography Show: Ligonier Valley Goes To War, 1861-1865: The American Civil War and the introduction of the Library’s newly renovated Community Room.

   

     The newly renovated basement room offers a welcoming atmosphere for group meetings and individual endeavors, such as research and study. The cupboards on two walls are akin to an elegant study. The display of Civil War artifacts and photographs were interesting to peruse through. And the dessert snacks were delectable.

     The event was particularly welcome as a break from a long winter and a wet, stormy, spring. I met many friends there, and one person said to a group I was standing with that it was nice to have so many historians there (yes, they were including me in the description).  

Special Friends Bruce, Sally and Chuck

     The board of directors, librarian Janet, and Pennsylvania Room supervisor Shirley deserve to be commended for the work they did preparing for the event. And for their efforts in making the library a viable service to the Ligonier community.

     The only disappointing part of the evening was that my camera battery died, and my spare was on the counter at home.
