The North Carolina Room turned 40 last week on Monday, June 15th and we had a wonderful celebration. The Friends of the Central Library sponsored our event. Lots of people stopped by to say thanks and to enjoy birthday cake, shortcake, fresh strawberries & blueberries, and lemonade. Balloons and flowers really made the affair festive. Attendees included patrons, former FCPL librarians, Forsyth County Genealogical Society members, and Forsyth County staff. We really enjoyed talking about the North Carolina Room’s history and sharing information about our collections. A family bible donation was a welcome surprise to be added to our genealogy collection. Thank you to everyone who attended!
