RE: William Hall Library open house on September 22nd
 
The Cranston Public Library 50th anniversary celebration continues with an open house at the William Hall Library on Saturday, September 22nd from 1-4:30pm.  Embark on a scavenger hunt of the library, enjoy refreshments, enter into our raffle, and listen to a entertaining presentation on the beautiful architecture of the library by author David Brussat.  This program is FREE and open to all ages.
 
Join David Brussat for a talk about the architecture of the William Hall Library starting at 3pm in the auditorium. Brussat is an architecture writer and blogger, known for his blog, Architecture Here and There and his book, "Lost Providence".
 
In 1968, the public libraries of Cranston united to form one citywide system. Under the direction of former library director, Jim Giles, we began sharing materials and working together to increase accessibility for all Cranston residents. This year, we look forward to sharing this celebration with all of you. CPL will be holding open houses at our branch locations throughout the year.
 
In celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cranston Public Library we also want to celebrate the rich history of the William Hall Library which was built in 1927.
 
The William Hall Library is located at 1825 Broad Street in Cranston.
