JJML staffer Susan Blumenkrantz baked this fantastic cake for the Capital Campaign Kickoff event.

Well, 10/10/10, better known as the John Jermain Memorial Library’s Centennial Anniversary turned out to be quite a festive day for a 100-year old. Between the free public celebration on the Custom House lawn in the afternoon, and the elegant kickoff celebration for our $3.5 million capital campaign at the home of Bob Weinstein and Eric Hensley, it’s probably safe to say that the library hasn’t seen this much excitement since opening day.

More cake -- and ice cream too -- were served at afternoon community celebration on the Custom House lawn.

And while many librarians might not agree that a picture is worth a thousand words, the 200+ pictures of the 10/10/10 events, will definitely give you a better idea of how festive the day was than anything we could write here.

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. Water St., in Sag Harbor, while our historic building is renovated and expanded.
