A collection of good books, with a soul to it in the shape of a librarian, becomes a vitalized power among the impulses by which the world goes on to improvement. Justin Winsor
Putting a soul in any building is a worthy challenge. In the words of founders of the East Side Freedom Library it is “librarians who brought life and commitment to our historic building.”
And it is those librarians who will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 8, 7:00 p.m. at the ESFL as appreciative community members gather remember and “to honor the women and men who have worked in this building.”
The celebration is part of the ESFL celebration of the centennial of the historic Carnegie Library building, once the home of the Arlington Hills Library.

There will be a short program, refreshments and a reunion of library supporters, neighbors, bibliophiles, library lovers and history buffs. The evening is free and open to all.
The East Side Freedom Library is at 1105 Greenbrier Street, St Paul. Info@eastsidefreedomlibirary.org 651 230 3294.
