Centennial Displays Are All Up @ MPL

All of the Through the Decades centennial displays are up at the Library.  Drop by to take a look this week.  Posted below are the latest displays from the 1980s/1990s and 21st Century (so far).  Click the images below to enlarge.

We hope to see you this Saturday, May 12, 2012, for our 100th anniversary celebration.  Come to our big party--a century in the making!  Well, not the cake--that will be made later this week--just in time for the main event.

Purple Dress was worn at the wedding

Dress fabric was originally blue (to match hat) but has turned purple with age
(Still in style during the early 1940s but with a shorter hemline)
