I am pleased to announce that on Saturday the Cita Dennis Hubbell branch of the New Orleans Public Library will celebrate its reopening in its original location at 725 Pelican Ave. in Algiers Point.
After an extensive renovation, we are marking the reopening with a grand opening community celebration for the whole neighborhood.
The celebration offers library tours, games, face painting, crafts with Confetti Kids and more throughout the day. Events include: Storytime with Miss Domonique at 10:30 a.m., Calliope Puppets Performance at 11 a.m. and an author talk and book signing with food writer Poppy Tooker at 1 p.m.
Rick Trolsen and Friends will play at 2 p.m., and Egg Yolk Jubilee perform and close out the events at 3 p.m.
This library first opened Dec. 28, 1907, and was one of five libraries in New Orleans established with money from Andrew Carnegie.
Now that the Cita Dennis Hubbell Branch has been reopened in its original location, it will continue its legacy as an integral part of this community and will always be cited as an inspiring example of the dedication and love this community has for its library. I hope you will join us for this exciting celebration!
