A week of celebratory activities to mark Public Library Week in Ontario and the end of Deseronto Public Library’s 125th year started in fine style yesterday evening with a fundraising celebratory dinner. The room was beautifully decorated with quilts and memorabilia from times past, including this wonderful quilt which was made in 1967 to mark Canada’s centennial celebrations:

One of the quilt squares, sewn by Doris Root, shows the Deseronto Public Library building at 309 Main Street:

The Library will have some of these items on display all this week, so do take a chance to drop by and see them if you are in the area. Other events at the Library this week include a free music concert on Thursday October 20th at 7pm and a free afternoon tea event on Saturday October 22nd between 2pm and 5pm.
