The Concord Free Public Library Corporation was proud to organize and sponsor two Open House Celebrations for the community, one in May and one in June.

These events were well attended by patrons of all ages, who enjoyed concerts from Rockabye Beats, tours of the new Library spaces (led by the CFPL Corporation Trustees), sticker parties in the brand new Teen Lounge, demonstrations in Special Collections, the dedication of the Wayside Dollhouse, unveiling of the “Millie the Rubber Ducky” sculpture, and free ice cream!

The Open Houses were in celebration of the expanded and renovated Main Library, funded by the $12.2 million raised by the CFPL Corporation, the largest fundraising effort ever undertaken by the Corporation!
