Families can have tea with Lucretia Garfield and James R. Garfield – the wife and son, respectively, of President James A. Garfield – during a special program at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, at our Main Branch.
Families will enjoy tea, make a craft and learn how the Garfield family supported the library through its history.
Throughout the day, kids can also complete a special scavenger hunt throughout the Main Branch in celebration of our 200th anniversary.
The tea is free to attend. However, families must register beforehand. You can sign up online at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
This special tea is just one of many programs and events we’re offering to celebrate our 200th anniversary in 2019. The offerings include amnesty days where patrons can have fines waived for previously lost items and lectures about the history of Mentor. For more information, visit www.mentorpl.org/200th.
