Traverse City Library Hosts Gala Celebrating 20 Years

One Northern Michigan library is celebrating a big anniversary this week.

The Traverse Area District Library opened its doors in January 1999.

They celebrate 20 years on Thursday with fun events all day long.

Then Friday there will be a Gala fundraiser event with a strolling dinner, silent auction, and a brief keynote speech from a New York Times best-selling author.

“I would really like to thank the citizens and the donors who made this building possible back over 20 years ago,” says director Gail Juett.

“We are very much looking forward to continuing to do exciting things to serve our community. I think in the next few years we’re going to see quite a few more changes and I’m sure everyone is going to be excited about that.”
