It’s National Park Week and there’s no better way to celebrate than with our friends down the street at James A. Garfield National Historic Site. (Lawnfield, to the locals.)
We visited the historic site on Monday for its annual Easter Egg Roll. We had crafts, candy and, of course, free books!
It’s always a good time to visit Lawnfield, but National Park Week is a special time to visit a special place in our region and nation’s history.
By the way,the experts from Garfield National Historic Site also lead our monthly Civil War program.
Each month, they discuss a different topic pertaining to the Civil War, which President James A. Garfield served in. In April, they talked about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Our Civil War series continues at noon on Wednesday, May 8, at our Main Branch. We’ll learn about the Fourteenth Amendment. As always, the talk is free and open to all.
