The Goshen County Library recently marked its 100th birthday! A special event was the culmination of celebrating 100 years of serving the residents of Goshen County. Festivities included singing led by Paul Braddy (Library Director Cristine Braddy’s husband), cake, confetti cannons, and activities. Kids in attendance enjoyed stacking 100 cups, building with marshmallows and glowsticks, and playing board games.

Young and old celebrated together and enjoyed conversation. The library is looking to the future with a new logo in the coming months.

According to a history written in 1969 by Mary Kelly, who was Goshen County Librarian at the time, the library was first “established in 1922 by a small group of a Womans Club. It was first located in the Junior High wing of the Torrington high school.”

You can see all the photos and videos, but we thought we’d share some of our favorites here.
