New Main Library, 330 Homer Street-Gala preview, dedication and 10th anniversary, 1991-2001

Newton Free Library

The City of Newton owns a wealth of historic materials that speak to the community's social, cultural, and governmental past. These materials reflect the civic life of and provide insight into Newton from the 19th through the early 20th century, a time when Newton was transforming from agriculture to industry and becoming a suburban Boston residential community. Presented here is a collection of photographs of the gala preview of the New Main Library at 330 Homer Street on September 14, 1991, the grand opening on September 15, 1991, and the 10th anniversary celebration in September 2001.
