Library – Our Community’s Heart


May, 2018

Brown library offers programs and services we can all enjoy.

I recently attended another presentation of “A Bite of History” at the George H. & Laura E. Brown Library and this time Bartow Houston delivered an hour of his great collection of anecdotes giving us glimpses into Washington’s history.

You may know Bartow from his regular contributions to Washington Daily News.

He’s one of the many local historians we’re fortunate to have living here in Washington, who helps us both preserve and enjoy our past.

A Bite of History is a speaker series that you don’t want to miss.  It’s one of many programs that make our local library such an asset to Washington.

You won’t want to miss Leesa Jones July 19, “I’m from Washington and Nobody Told Me This!”

If you missed earlier presentations, you can watch Blount Rumley below:
