McCutchan, Martinkus will present program on the history of Matson Public Library
PRINCETON — On April 15, 1913, the Matson Public Library Building on Courthouse Square was dedicated. This marked a culmination of efforts to establish a free public library in the city of Princeton that began in 1885 with a bequest in the will of Nehemiah Matson.
The library was located on South Main Street until the decision was made to build a permanent library facility on the main square, facilitated by a gift by Samuel P. Clarke. In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Matson Building, Ron McCutchan and Margaret Martinkus will present a program on the history of the Matson Public Library building at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Princeton Public Library.
Later in the week, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Joan Marella will lead an Advanced Writer’s Critique Workshop at the library. Writers must bring a piece of writing — either a finished poem or at least two pages of finished prose (something you’ve already done some work on). For more information, contact Joan Marella at 815-875-3127 or call the library at 815-875-1331.
