Two Ways to Celebrate JJML’s 100th Birthday

Leave a comment

On October 10, 2010, the John Jermain Memorial Library will be 100 years old. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we’ve planned two exciting events for the day, and we’d love to have you join us for one or both.

  1. The first event will take place between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. on the Custom House lawn, diagonally across the street from the Library. It will feature ice cream and cake for all, Music by the Sag Harbor Community Band, and guided tours of our historic library building. We will also have commemorative t-shirts for sale. Everyone is invited to this free event, and we’re looking forward to welcoming the entire community.
  2. Then, later that evening, the Trustees of the library will kick off our Capital Campaign with a special event: All for the Books. Tickets for this celebration of John Jermain’s history and it’s next 100 years are $100 each ($80 tax-deductible) and are available at the library or through our secure website. All donations will go towards the Library’s Capital Campaign, and will help ensure that the renovation and addition now underway will fully meet the needs of the community. We hope you will join us between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m.at All for the Books, to celebrate the our past and plan for our future.

10/7/10 UPDATE: All for the Books is Sold Out. Thank you, one and all, for your support!

The John Jermain Memorial Library is the public library in Sag Harbor, NY. Founded in 1910, the library building and initial collection was a gift from Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage to the people of Sag Harbor. From June 2011 to July 2013 the library will be located at 34 W.
