William Sturgis, the founder and original benefactor of Sturgis Library, was born on February 25th, 1782. Today, we not only celebrate his birthday, but will kick off our 150th Anniversary celebration. Sturgis Library opened its doors in August of 1867, and in 2017 we are celebrating 150 years of library service to the community.
Join us for a community open house between 4 and 6 PM on Saturday, February 25th, 2017 to celebrate these two major milestones. The open house will include:
–An opportunity to gather together with friends, neighbors, and Sturgis Library patrons, and members of the community
–Wine, cheese and other refreshments
–An unveiling of a William Sturgis timeline created by Sturgis Charter School
–The debut of the Sturgis community family tree
–Exhibits of documents and photographs related to the history of Sturgis Library
