Brookings Public Library celebrates centennial

Brookings Public Library celebrates Centennial - Elvita Landau emcees a program with speakers

The Brookings Public Library celebrated its one hundredth anniversary on Sunday, April 14, with Elvita Landau, director, emceeing a brief program of civic speakers. Afterward, attendees were invited to participate in demonstrations of library resources by library staff arranged throughout the library. A timeline created by staff attracted visitors’ attention. Running the length of one wall, it showed decade by decade changes in the library aligned with U.S. historical and Brookings historical events from the time period. A display case showed off library relics from the past, including its recently received Exemplary Library Accreditation certificate from the State Library.
