Visit Our Centennial Quilt
The Forbush Memorial Library is pleased to announce that the Centennial Quilt is now on display for a year. This beautiful hand-crafted masterpiece was created by 15 local quilters in 2001-02 as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the present library building on Main Street. The cotton appliqued hand-stitched quilt is composed of 35 decorated blocks, 13 of which illustrate various aspects of our library and it’s place in the community, past and present.
