year marks the Bi­b­lio­thèque Len­noxville Li­brary’s 100th An­niver­sary, and the Len­noxvilleAs­cot His­tor­i­cal & Mu­seum So­ci­ety (LAHMS) is join­ing the cel­e­bra­tion! On July 5th, from 5pm to 7pm we will be open­ing a new ex­hibit in hon­our of this oc­ca­sion:

The pub­lic is in­vited to join us for re­fresh­ments dur­ing the open­ing.

Among the books dis­played will be ones that read­ers might have come across in the Li­brary’s col­lec­tion from the time it opened its doors in 1912, lead­ing up to the end of World War II. The choices range from Chil­dren’s books, in­clud­ing clas­sics like and as well as Young adult fa­vorites. The Adult sec­tion will show­case both fic­tion and non-fic­tion, and a dis­play will be ded­i­cated en­tirely to Cana­di­ana. The ex­hibit’s ab­sence

of French ti­tles is due to the fact that the Li­brary only be­gan to col­lect French lan­guage books in the 1970s.

This event pre­cedes an­other lit­er­ary event tak­ing place at Up­lands the fol­low­ing week. The Bi­b­lio­thèque Len­noxville Li­brary will host

in the Up­lands gar­den on Thurs­day, July 12th from 2pm to 4pm. Stop in for an English Tea ser­vice and en­joy an ar­ray of read­ings from old clas­sics! Reser­va­tions can be made by call­ing 819-564-0409.

Ad­mis­sion to the Ex­hibit is FREE. Up­lands’ Tea ser­vices range from $8.50 to $13.50, but the Read­ings are free of charge! We hope that you will be among us for th­ese cel­e­bra­tions.
