McClatchy Library Holding Open House This Saturday

November 17, 2011

Our neighborhood's own Ella K. McClatchy Library, at 2112 22nd Street (between U and V).

Like local libraries?  This Saturday, November 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Ella K. McClatchy Library (located at 2112 22nd Street) will be hosting its annual Fall Open House.  It’s a great chance to come by and check out a delightful community resource here in our neighborhood.

Starting at 11:00 a.m., the Friends of the McClatchy Library will be holding their annual board meeting at the Library.  If you already know and like what we’ve got and are interested in supporting the Library, this would be a good chance to meet the people who’ve been working to preserve it, find out what’s been going on lately, and get involved.

From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., the Library is opening up its patio in back for a Patio Sale.  Check out fine books, non-fiction books, gift baskets and more.  From 2:00 to 4:00, learn how to make an Ella K. McClatchy Library magnet; or take a tour of the upstairs rooms (rarely seen by the general public).

Refreshments will also be available from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Come on out and enjoy meeting neighbors, shopping for a gift, and of course browsing for books!
