Come and celebrate your friendly neighborhood library that has graced East Haddam for more than 100 years.
A celebration will be hosted by the East Haddam Free Public Library at 18 Plains Road in Moodus (East Haddam) beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13.
Enjoy the celebration and refreshments.
Prize winners in the “125th Anniversary Art Contest,” hosted by the Friends of the East Haddam Free Public Library, also will be announced, at 5:30 p.m.
The library exhibited the work of many talented artists over the summer. And since the Friends hope that “Your Friendly Neighborhood Library” is your favorite place in town where all your favorite books live, the art entries all represent a “Favorite Place in Town” or a “Favorite Literary Work.”
There will be a First, Second and Third Place winner awarded in each age group.
Every winner will receive a trophy and the cash prizes are: $30 for First Place, $20 for Second Place and $10 for Third Place. An additional “Community Favorite” prize will be awarded based on votes cast by library visitors.
