Evening with Friends

Please join the Friends of the Library as they welcome Elaine Buck and Beverly Mills who will give a presentation at the inaugural Evening with Friends at the Library, entitled "A Proud Heritage, the African American Presence in the Sourland Mountain and Surrounding Region."

The speakers will discuss their pioneering work unveiling unknown stories about slavery and the too-often-ignored African American history in Mercer and Somerset Counties. Ms. Buck and Ms. Mills have collected decades of research from oral histories, land deeds, church records and preserved cemetery plots to discover a fascinating narrative of the local African American experience.

Meet the presenters at 6:00 pm with the program beginning at 6:30-7:30. All are welcome to attend. Community Room A.
