The Friends of Forbes Library’s annual meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 12 at 6:30 PM in the library’s Coolidge Museum. It will also be live streamed on YouTube. After a brief business meeting, local history specialist Dylan Gaffney will present an illustrated talk about the history of Downtown Northampton from 1887-1987. “I chose this time period because it is well documented in our photo archives and represents a century of both constant change and lasting memories for those who lived, worked, shopped, and visited downtown” said Gaffney. In this talk you will learn about the businesses, architecture, economics, and cultural changes that have both shaped and been shaped by our unique city center. This program is free and open to the public. For more information contact the library at 413-587-1011 or email info@forbeslibrary.org.

The Friends of Forbes is a nonprofit group that supports the library. Annual membership in the Friends is $20 for an individual and $35 for a household. Forms to join will be available at the annual meeting.
