Saturday, November 12 from 1 – 4 p.m.
East Washington Branch
2822 E. Washington Street.
You are invited to celebrate the 100th birthday of one of Indianapolis’ original Carnegie libraries during the special centennial event for the East Washington Branch of The Indianapolis Public Library. East Washington Branch was the first library in Indianapolis to be built with funds from a $120,000 grant from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation. The branch was dedicated on November 14, 1911. Come to the party and enjoy:
- Magic Show by Don Miller
- Arsenal Technical High School Show Choir
- Balloon Creations by George Flexman
- History of the Library by William McNiece of the Marion County Historical Society (because you want to know about the cool book gnomes!)
And like any good birthday party there will be face painting, crafts, raffles, giveaways and CAKE!
Before you leave, write your thoughts about the East Washington Branch in a memory book.
