Read Woke From Home!
September 19 - November 21, 2020










For readers of ALL ages.

Read Woke is a movement. It is a feeling. It is a style. It is a form of education. It is a call to action; it is our right as lifelong learners. It means arming yourself with knowledge in order to better protect your rights. Knowledge is power and no one can take it away. It means learning about others so that you can treat people with the respect and dignity that they deserve no matter their religion, race, creed, or color." -- Cicely Lewis

Pre-1926 Meekins photos wanted
 
Do you have early 20th century photographs of the interior of Meekins Library that show the interior before the mezzanine level was added in 1926  hiding in your family albums? Do you know anyone who might have some early images?
Meekins Archivist Daria D’Arienzo (ddarienzo@me.com) is looking for visual evidence of how the rooms were laid out and decorated and where the original fixtures were placed. She is trying to build a photographic history of how Meekins has evolved. Exterior images are also welcome but she is particularly looking for interior views.
Please contact her directly at ddarienzo@me.com , at the desk at Meekins, or by phone at 413-538-6489.
