The Library will be commemorating the 50th Anniversary of three significant summer of 1969 events – the Stonewall Riots, the Apollo 11 moon landing, and the Woodstock music festival – with a Retro Summer Series and Retro Read adult reading program.

We will be joined by special guests for screenings of documentaries that will take us back in time. And our BINGO-styled Retro Read card will encourage you to explore “retro” and contemporary titles to keep you reading throughout the summer. Retro Read cards will be available at Adult Reference starting June 10 or download the Bingo Card and find helpful hints on our Bingo Page.

All events are free to attend and open to the public. Mark these dates on your calendar!
