The celebrations are free and open to the public. No registration is required. Free parking is available.

From The Seattle Public Library:

Step back in time and see clothing styles and enjoy music from the 1900s.

Representatives from Goodwill’s Vintage Fashion Collection will provide an exhibit featuring vintage clothing and an interactive hat show with about 50 hats to view and try on, including a bonnet from the pioneer days and a collapsible men’s hat meant to fit under a seat at the opera.

The event will also include live piano music featuring songs from the early 1900s and children’s craft activities, refreshments and commemorative pencils and bookmarks.

The Green Lake Library is currently collecting written stories from patrons about their favorite branch experiences. Patrons can use specially designed scrapbook paper available at the Green Lake Library.  You can also e-mail your stories for inclusion in the scrapbook to carnegiememories [at] spl.org. Be sure to identify the Green Lake Branch in your e-mail.

Your story will be included in an anniversary scrapbook that is on display at the Green Lake Library.  Several stories have already been submitted.  Here are a couple of gems:
