Upcoming EVENT!! Historians' Roundtable

Subject: Upcoming Event at Burlington County Library System Message: Burlington County Historians’ Roundtable
Mount Holly Library
Saturday, Feb. 26, 10 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.
or call 609-267-7111.
This is the first program in the Historians’ Roundtable, a project designed to bring community historians together for conversations in a public setting at local libraries. Burlington County historian Joe Laufer will be joined by his friend and fellow historian, Paul W. Schopp, and former county historian, Dave Kimball. The theme of the series will be Burlington County’s history agenda for 2011, an overview of the historians roundtable project, and a look at 2011 anniversaries and events and how we might best commemorate them. "It is fortuitous that we will be using two of the most historic libraries in the county for the first series of roundtables" Laufer reflected. The Mount Holly Library, originally known as The Library Company of Bridgetown, received its charter on June 11, 1765 from His Majesty George III of England, through William Franklin, then Governor-General of New Jersey. The library is the fifth oldest in the state. Preregistration requested.
Have a great day! Joe Laufer
