Greenwood library is celebrating a very special birthday this year. It’s turning a decade old! To celebrate this fantastic achievement, the library is throwing a special celebration. On the 8th of February, many fun activities will be held; all are totally free and open to the public. The celebration will be held from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm and will be tons of fun. Drop by and check it out.  Have some refreshments and share your great memories of this amazing library with your community. We will also be sealing a time capsule. The capsule will be stuffed with whatever special memories you decide to fill it up with. There is free parking in the lower garage and refreshments to be shared, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t come down to the Greenwood library and have some fun while commemorating a huge milestone for the library and community of Seattle.  Continue reading “10th Anniversary Of Greenwood Library: Feb 8th!”
