March News at the Library!
We continue the year long commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment. The Library, and The Milford CT Suffrage Centennial Commmittee, are hosting actor Sheryl Faye as Susan B. Anthony. This performance includes a multi-media component and dramatizes the life of one of the most famous women's rights activists. The performance will be held on Sunday, March 1 at 2:00pm. The library will be open ONLY for the performance.
