Meekins 250th Activities

Ongoing exhibits

Story Walk

Created especially for the 250th by Children’s Librarian Rochelle Wildfong, about a fictional historical child from Williamsburgh in the late 1700s, just after the founding of the town. The story walk will be on the lawn surrounding the Library and along the Mill River fence.

This is Who We Are!

A crowd-sourced “living archives” collage project crafted by Daria D’Arienzo, Meekins Archivist, allowing community members the chance to create a snapshot of their lives for the next generations so the next generations will know who we are as a community on this day. The collages created on July 16th are temporarily on display in the Black Reading Room.

A Day at the Dump

A screening of the special community Cross- Generation Conversations project film of townsfolk sharing what they love about our town recorded on July 1, 2017, at the town’s informal center, the Transfer Station in Haydenville. Continually playing inside the Meekins in the cool Hawks~Hayden Community Room.

250th Exhibition

An exhibition in the Neill Hammer Gallery walls in the Hawks~Hayden Community Room featuring views of the town by local community photographers.
