Lewisville Public Library’s 50th Anniversary Celebration
Monday, Sept. 24
The year was 1968 – Madison Square Garden opened in New York City; HemisFair ’68, The World’s Fair, was held in San Antonio; and Lewisville designated the Public Library as an official City department.
Much has changed about the Library in the past 50 years, but its commitment to the community remains the same. It has transitioned from lending out 16mm film in the early 1970s to the cutting-edge Hive makerspace and Digital Media Lab of today.
Lewisville’s first Library was located in the basement of the old Presbyterian Church at the southeast corner of Church and Charles streets. It has been housed in seven buildings through the years, and for a time operated two locations simultaneously.
Attendees at this free event will learn fun facts such as that and more. Light refreshments will be served, local musician Dalene Richelle will perform, and there will be library tours.
