100th Anniversary to be Celebrated

The Free Library of New Hope and Solebury is inviting the community to celebrate with a 100th Birthday Party on June 3 from 2:00pm-5:00pm!

The free event, hosted by the Board of Trustees, will be held on the grounds and street front of the Free Library, which is located at 93 W. Ferry Street in New Hope. The Long Hill String Band will be playing heritage music throughout the afternoon, and Al Grout will entertain with magic tricks and juggling.

Guests can see the creation of a mural in real time, as well as watch students from New Hope-Solebury High School’s Mask & Zany Club performing as “living statues.” The Nina’s Waffles & Ice Cream food truck will also be on hand. Free parking will be available at the high school for this rain or shine birthday party. Incoporated on April 2, 1918, the Free Library was Bucks County’s first library.
