 Farmington  See map

Learn about Farmington’s oldest books – critically important tangible and unique treasures that are part of the fabric of our historic community, now part of the library’s Farmington Room collection.  Leather books covered by sheepskin dust jackets over 200 years ago; books dating back to 1702, many owned and inscribed by members of Farmington’s most revered families; rare and beautifully-illustrated children’s books; and more!!

Presented by Paul Kramer, this program will be followed by a scavenger hunt in the library, for items related to local history.  Teams will be either families or pairs of adults, and prizes will be awarded.

OUR TOWN: A series of  six programs on local history,  sponsored jointly by Friends of the Farmington Library & the Farmington Heritage Alliance. All programs Sunday afternoons at 2 PM, January & February 2013, in the Community Room of the Farmington Library.
