120th Birthday Celebration for Belden Noble Memorial Library
July 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
(Belden Noble Memorial Library in 1905.)
The library has a long history of welcoming people young and old to sample the books and activities offered there. Until now, however, visitors to the library have only seen a small blurry, faded photograph of a portrait of Mrs. Noble, which hangs between shelves in the library’s fiction section. But now, a nearly full-size digital canvas reproduction of the stunning oil-on-canvas original will be unveiled in the upstairs Reading Room during the Library’s 120th Birthday Celebration on Saturday, July 27.
The new History Wall, to be unveiled this month, includes Noble family portraits, a flyer dated 1875 promoting a “programme of dramatic exercises…for benefit of library” (proof that the library is older than we thought), a sepia photograph of the library’s interior circa 1905, two antique revolving bookshelves that would have held the library’s original books, and a near-full-size reproduction of Flameng’s portrait of Adeline Noble.
All are welcome to attend the 120th Birthday Celebration for Belden Noble Memorial Library on Saturday, July 27, from 2 to 4 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
