On Sunday, Oct. 8, 1967, Astorians gathered to observe the dedication of the new Astor Library & Veterans Memorial. The Astoria Public Library, 450 10th St., marks the 50th anniversary of the original dedication with a free public event from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Mayor Arline LaMear speaks at the celebration, which includes historical displays, activities for children and cake. Guests have the opportunity to tour the library basement, which houses materials encompassing over 100 years of local history. The event also kicks off the Astoria Library Foundation’s campaign to raise $3.5 million for the renovation of the library.
