Family Event Planned on May 21 to Mark Byram Shubert Library’s 90th Anniversary

This year’s Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of the founding of the Byram Shubert Library, a branch of Greenwich Library, continues on Saturday, May 21 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm with a giant outdoor family party!

The free event is hosted by the Friends of the Byram Shubert Library. It will be held in the library’s parking area at 41 Mead Avenue in Byram.

The afternoon will begin at 12:45 with a memorial to Eileen Clancy, a long time Byram resident and Friend of the library.  A newly planted crepe myrtle tree in front of the library building will be dedicated in her memory. There will be a bagpiper to set the mood and several tributes to Mrs. Clancy, whose generosity extended to many in the community. The crepe myrtle tree was donated by the Greenwich Parks & Recreation Department. 

Hamilton Avenue School singers and their teacher, Anne Rollin, who will perform at Saturday’s Anniversary celebration at the Byram Shubert Library.

The memorial will be followed at 1:00pm with performances by the Hamilton Avenue and New Lebanon School choruses, returning to the scene where their songs brought so much enjoyment to the library’s Annual Outdoor Tree Lighting event.

There will be something fun for everyone, from an antique fire engine to a modern police car and ambulance, a 20-foot slide, a petting zoo, face painting, bubbles and balloons and a DJ and dancing.  Children can enjoy creating crafts to take home and decorating place mats to be given to our older neighbors at the Nathaniel Witherell. 

An indoor exhibit will highlight historical places in Byram.

There will be ice cream pops and popcorn to enjoy.
