The Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N., will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its new building at a community party from 1:30-3:30 on Sunday, Feb. 8.
Meet City Librarian Marcellus Turner, enjoy refreshments and share your favorite library memories.
The Library will also be sealing a time capsule, which will be opened at the branch’s 25th anniversary in 2030. “Library patrons are invited to write a letter to their future self, describe the community, draw pictures or take photos—whatever comes to mind!” said Karen Spiel, regional manager for libraries in northwest Seattle. Templates for the time capsule can be picked up at the Greenwood Branch, and entries can be turned in to the branch through Sunday, Feb. 8.
The current Greenwood Branch opened Jan. 29, 2005. It was the 13th project completed under the 1998 voter-approved “Libraries for All” building program. The branch features an expansive view of the Cascade Mountains, tables made of wood salvaged from an American red elm, and artwork by Portland artists Fernanda D’Agostino and Valerie Otani based on Greenwood Branch patrons who posed as models.
