Friends of the Library & memorial bricks
Three and a half years ago The Cambridge City Public Library opened new doors to our community. We moved from 33 W Main Street to 600 W Main Street (the old Allen Chevrolet building). We have enjoyed so much about this new building, including: space for materials, programming and parking; meeting rooms, History and Overbeck Museum space, new technology and the beautiful Reading Garden.
Dale Scott, our maintenance man and part time library assistant, has done a wonderful job with the grounds. You can easily see he not only loves his work, but he loves the library! This includes the reading garden. The flowers, trees and plants are at their best right now! The original landscaping was done by Pat Redden, retired Ag teacher and his Ag classes. Dale has kept the grounds looking top notch and added his personal touches. The board of trustees recently decided to add lighting all around the building, showcasing its beauty! Dale is currently putting new sand under some of the Memorial Bricks
to level them. Rain and time have caused them to need some maintaining. Next Saturday, September 6, during Canal Days the library will have a table in front of the “old library”. We will be passing out goody bags and balloons with information about the library’s programs.
You may also purchase a Memorial Brick to add to our Reading
Garden. Bricks are $100 for three lines. Engraving is done at
Rock Garden Engraving in Brookville, IN. It is a wonderful gift
for a friend, loved one, or yourself!
The library also has a Friends of the Library Group. They have
helped us with summer reading, special programs, and much
more. Annual memberships are:
Individual $5.00, Family $10.00 and Business $25.00
