Learn About City History at the NPL Annual Meeting

Newark, New Jersey: The annual meeting of the Friends of the Newark Public Library will take place this week. It will be held in the Centennial Hall of the Main Library between 5:30pm and 8:00pm on Wednesday, December 9th. Following a brief business meeting, the theme of the program will be 'The Ups and Downs of Preserving Newark's Proud Architectural Legacy'. Troy West and Matthew Gosser, both architects, will discuss public art in the city, old buildings like the Dietz Building that have been preserved, buildings like the old Essex County Jail which lie abandoned, and old buildings that have been torn down, like the Westinghouse Building. Admission is free. To register, call (973) 733-7793. The main branch of the Newark Public Library is located at 5 Washington Street, near the corner of Broad Street. There is limited street parking, and the area is served by the Washington Park and Atlantic Street Stations on the Newark Light Rail, in addition to local buses. Click here to learn more.
