Library Director Will Adamczyk to hold “Local History Book Club”
On Wednesday, October 4th, Library Director Will Adamczyk will hold a “Local History Book Club” in the lower level Conference Room, starting at 7:00 p.m. The book to be read in advance is Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919 by Stephen Puleo. This is the true story of a 50-foot tall steel tank with 2.3 million gallons of molasses that collapsed on Boston’s waterfront on January 15, 1919. It demolished wooden homes, even the brick fire station, and the number of dead was not known for days. It would be years before a landmark court battle determined who was responsible for the disaster. Pick up your copy of the book at the Library or place a reserve online at www.miltonlibrary.org where you can click on “View Catalog” to search for the title. If you have not read this great book, please do so and join Will in a fascinating discussion.
All of these programs are kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, and the concert series is also supported by the Milton Woman’s Club. They are free and open to the public, and will be held in the Keys Community Room unless otherwise specified. Please come and enjoy our library’s happenings this October.
