Boston_Tea_Party_Currier_coloredIn December 1773, three ships carrying East India Company tea arrived in Boston. Patriots refused to allow the tea to be unloaded and the tax paid, setting in motion the events leading up to the famous Boston Tea Party. Historian Gary Hylander will return to the library to bring this part of our nation’s history to life in a program funded by the Friends of the Library.

Purchase your Holiday Ornament!

library ornamentThis beautifully-crafted  porcelain ornament was commissioned by the Friends of the Library in 2013 and is again available this 2014 holiday season. A sketch of the library is on the front and the library’s 115-year history is printed on the back.

The ornament is 3-1/4″ round with a gold-string hanger and comes in a sturdy plastic bag.

The cost is $15 and you can purchase the ornament at the library with cash or check at the front desk.  It can be purchased by credit or debit in the administrative office of the library.  This is a perfect gift for past-present-future Norwood family and friends.

If you live out of state and can’t make it to the library, please write to the director, Charlotte Canelli at ccanelli@minlib.net.
