Celebration of the Belmont Public Library’s 150th Anniversary

Friday – Sunday, March 2 – 4, 2018
Belmont Public Library
336 Concord Avenue, Belmont

The Belmont Historical Society is joining with the Belmont Public Library, the Belmont Garden Club, the Belmont Library Foundation, and the Friends of The Belmont Public Library in sponsoring a respite from winter. Spring will bloom early in Belmont this year: the  library’s sesquicentennial celebration begins with “Books In Bloom”, an exhibit of more than 20 floral interpretations of popular books, to be held the weekend of March 2 – 4 at the library. The celebration begins with Friday night’s “First Look” opening party on March 2 from 7:00 – 9:00 in the library when the floral designers reveal their creations. Be the first to see these original floral interpretation of books at their freshest, displayed throughout the building. Enjoy wine, beer and light refreshments, meet friends, and listen to music as you stroll through the exhibits. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, available now at the Belmont Public Library, Belmont Books (in Belmont Center), the Beech Street Center, and online through Eventbrite.

All remaining events on Saturday and Sunday are free and open to the public. On Saturday, March 3, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, the Belmont Historical Society will open the doors to its historic Claflin Room in the library. Come learn about the history of Belmont as well as the history of the library via a continuous media display.  See some of Belmont’s many historic artifacts housed in the Claflin Room and learn many fun facts about Belmont history from members of the Society.
