Candlelight Commemoration

Candlelight Commemoration

When the library opened on Feb. 14, 1939, a funny thing happened: the lights went out forcing the crowd to tour their new library by candlelight. Eighty years to the day, in the same reading rooms, hear the story of how Oakwood worked to open a full-fledged library and of the notable people and patrons who have carried on their mission for 80 years. The evening will also include hands-on activities, historical displays, and light refreshments.
