On March 26th the Amelia Branch Library will be celebrating its 25th birthday. For some unfamiliar with all that the Amelia Branch has to offer that may seem a long time – too long to stay relevant. Blasphemy! I say to them.
The library is wearing its age well. At the Amelia Branch you can download the latest e-book to your device, put a hold on the new Hobbit movie, make a work of art from Peeps, and listen to some creepy cold case stories from a local author. We have computers with internet access, Playaway Views which allow you to take television shows anywhere on a preloaded player and databases that connect you to everything from your ancestors with Ancestry Library Edition to a fixed lawn mower with Small Engine Repair Reference Center.
The Amelia Branch Library has never looked so good! In fact 25 isn’t so bad. Check out these other things that are also 25 years young.
