Gravenhurst Public Library and Gravenhurst Archives are celebrating two special anniversaries on Tuesday July 10, from 5-8 pm at the Library with the public invited to join in!  

Gravenhurst Public Library will mark their 135th anniversary while the Gravenhurst Archives will mark forty years preserving Gravenhurst’s rich history.

Julia Reinhart, Chief Librarian says “The Library is thrilled to invite the public to celebrate this amazing accomplishment and our long lasting partnership with the Gravenhurst Archives”. 

Judy Humphries, archives curator, will share a presentation that will focus on the history of Gravenhurst’s main street, including the Carnegie Library Building that housed the Library from 1923 until it was relocated to the new building in 2000.

The July 10 event will also feature tours, door prizes and historic photos on display of the library and Gravenhurst’s main street in the Stairwell Art Gallery.
