Due to the overwhelming response to Rachel Clothier’s program: Corinth’s History Mysteries: Solved & Unsolved, we will be repeating the program on Monday August 13 at 7pm. If you couldn’t get a seat on Tuesday, please join us on Monday!
There is so much going on in Corinth this month!
August 7 at 7pm Rachel Clothier of the Corinth Museum will be here at the library giving a program on Corinth’s History Mysteries: Solved and Unsolved. Rachel always has great photos to share as well as interesting information on Corinth’s past. This program is part of the library’s events to celebrate the Town of Corinth’s Bicentennial.
August 10 at 1pm is the Summer Reading Wrap-up Party. All who successfully completed our Summer Reading Challenge are invited to attend to pick up their certificates and prizes. During the party the prizes for our Historical Marker Scavenger Hunt will be awarded.

The library will be closing early on Saturday August 18 (open 9-12noon only) in order to allow us to get to our line-up spot for the Bicentennial Parade.

During the Town of Corinth’s Bicentennial celebration the Corinth Free Library is highlighting various aspects of the history of Corinth in its display case. During the month of August the display features the “Sesquicentennial Time Capsule”. Included in the display are items that had been placed in the time capsule and sealed at the end of the Sesquicentennial celebration in 1968. Thanks to the Corinth Museum for their help with this display.
