Jay Janell, local history librarian, will lead a walking tour of the Heywood Wakefield factory. As we walk among the former mill buildings, we will learn about 150 years of furniture manufacturing, from raw lumber to finished products. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and gather in the Greenwood Meeting Room. A selection of maps, photographs, and artifacts will be on display before and after the tour.
Angela Narkevicius Branon was born in a Displaced Persons Camp in Germany after World War II. At the age of five she immigrated to the United States with her family and settled in Gardner, Massachusetts. She loved both art and science, but decided that science would be the more practical career choice. All her focus was in that direction until the age of 28 when she couldn’t ignore art’s siren call. She enrolled in the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and graduated with a BFA from Tufts University. She dabbled in art throughout her nursing career and upon retirement she was able to once again devote her time to her art. Her artwork will be on display in the Library's Exhibit Gallery for the month of April.
In April, the Book Group will be reading The Library Book by Susan Orlean. This book reopens the unsolved mystery of the most catastrophic library fire in American history, the 1986 Los Angeles Public Library fire, while exploring the crucial role that libraries play in modern American culture.
