GPL Presents: A Celebration of Massachusetts Libraries: A History of Libraries In The Bay State
About This Event
Join the Greenfield Public Library, in collaboration with the Tewksbury Public Library, for the virtual program A Celebration of Massachusetts Libraries: A History of Libraries In The Bay State, on Wednesday, June 14, 7 pm.
From the early days of European settlement to the present, Boston and Massachusetts have been friendly to the printed word. In fact, the first printing press in British North America arrived at Harvard in 1636. Libraries — private, public, and academic — quickly followed.
Massachusetts author and historian Alan Earls will present a slideshow and discussion of some of the important milestones, architectural gems, and key figures in this story as well as an overview of just how richly endowed we are with libraries of all kinds today
