Library Open House

Join the Staff, Trustees, and Friends of the Brookline Public Library for our Annual Opne House on Saturday, September 10 from 10 am to 2 pm.
We will be celebrating Food, Fun and Community, with a 1930's theme to tie-in with our Big Read book, The Grapes of Wrath.
Food will include some budget-stretching dishes popular during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl.
Fun will be had playing the games that became popular in the 1930's, like Monopoly and Scrabble.
Community will be celebrated with lots of interesting information on what Brookline was like in the 1930's.
Enjoy seeing the 1939 Fire truck, courtesy of the Brookline Fire Department, and a 1931 Ford Model A pick up, courtesy of Scott Grzyb.
