Lisbon Library’s 80th Birthday Celebration

The Lisbon Public Library turns 80 years old this year and is celebrating with a public birthday party and open house on Saturday, April 16.

“The Lion in the Well”, a puppet show for all ages by the Eulenspiegel Puppet Company, will be presented at 10 AM. A photo booth will be set up to commemorate the occasion. Patrons can also test their knowledge of the library by going on a scavenger hunt to answer trivia questions.

AT 11:30 AM, there will be a special dedication of Jo’s Corner, in memory of Lisbon High School student Johanna Gingerich-Feil.  This area includes new seating in the Children’s Corner.

Door prizes, a guessing jar, a giant birthday card, and, of course, cake for everyone will be part of the fun.  Visitors will be able to see updates to the library’s furniture and decor.  

This celebration is suitable for all ages. Join the fun and come see what’s new at your local library!

The library’s birthday party is sponsored by the Lisbon Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of Lisbon Public Library.
