The Southborough Library celebrated 100 years in its Main Street home on Saturday with food, photos, and lots of memories. Residents and library staff enjoyed apple cake – a Friends of the Southborough Library specialty – while browsing photo displays and telling stories of the way things were.
At the start of the celebration, Childrens Librarian Kim Ivers – who, for those of you who didn’t know, has herself been with the library for more than 20 years – named the winners of the library’s photo, essay, and coloring contest. Charlotte Roiter, 7, won for her coloring, Rianna Mukerhee, 10, for her photograph, and Victoria Haskins, 9, for her essay about “what the library means to me.”
