The new Bookmobile also made an appearance, parked on-site and ready for the many visitors passing through.
Durbin, the library’s marketing specialist and planner of teen events, was happily overwhelmed with the events of the day, which wound up surpassing her expectations in every way.
Durbin also took time to thank Deb Locke and the Decatur County Community Foundation for the donation of a butter cream icing-topped birthday cake.
In the quest to make the celebration as memorable as possible, Durbin and other library staff appeared to pull out all the stops to unite the library’s past with its present. The teen activities coordinator mentioned that delving into the accession book penned by Monfort was “a surreal experience.” She also located a book containing the minutes of the library board’s first meeting. Former Indiana Lieutenant Governor Will Cumback, mentioned in the notes, served as Greensburg’s first library board president.
