Carmel Clay Public Library director to speak at Carmel Clay Historical Society luncheon
By Amanda Foust
The Carmel Clay Historical Society is inviting the community to come to its annual Springtime Luncheon on April 28. Guests can enjoy lunch followed by a presentation from Carmel Clay Public Library Director Carolyn Goolsby.
“This is a great way to get to know the Carmel Clay Historical Society,” CCHS Executive Director Whitney Dennis said.
CCHS preserves and shares Carmel’s history through programs about local topics, tours of historic homes and the Monon Railroad Depot Museum and an archive of documents and artifacts, among other things.
At the luncheon, Goolsby plans to speak on “The Library for the Next Generation.” She will share the history of libraries, the origin of CCPL, and her vision for the future growth of the library.
“Imagine what (the library) will be like in another 100 years,” Dennis said, “Carolyn will have had an important role in that development.”
Immediately after the program, the guests can tour the Palladium and the Michael Feinstein Songbook Archives. Wine will be available for purchase as well.
“You can come to the event to support the CCHS’ mission, hear about what’s next for the CCPL, learn about history and architecture in the Palladium and Songbook Gallery, or just enjoy lunch with friends,” Dennis said.
Money raised from the event will be used to continue the services offered by CCHS.
“This will be a great time with good company, supporting important local causes, and gaining a deeper understanding of our beloved library,” Dennis said.
