Kennedy Library Grand Reopening!

January 25, 2008

 Don’t miss the Grand Reopening Celebration

                        Thursday, February 14, 2008.

  •      3:00 Kennedy Opens to the Public
  •      5:30 Dedication and Ribbon Tearing

Just as gifts were given one-by-one to renovate Kennedy Library, a winding ribbon will be passed person-to-person to encompass all who attend. Come enjoy refreshments, music by Ferratt & Delaney and help us unwrap this gift to the community by tearing the ribbon that marks the Grand Reopening! Come see the expanded space, the new meeting rooms, story time rooms and coffee area. Stop by Kennedy on Valentine’s Day to see the newly renovated space and all it has to offer and see why we believe it is the heart of reading and lifelong learning!

 John F. Kennedy Library is located at 1700 W. McGalliard Road.
