In 1922, the sister of Moses Greeley Parker donated land and money to build a new library for the town of Dracut. The library opened to the community in November 1923. In celebration of the 100th anniversary, we are planning a series of events through November 2023, including the following:
Dr. Rebecca Duda presents Notable Locals: Watch the Recording
Richard Howe presents Dr. Moses Greely Parker’s Life and Legacy: Watch the Recording
The History of the Parker Library’s Museum of Antiques – a talk by Barbara Varnum from the Dracut Historical Society
Town-wide Scavenger Hunt
Oral History Project
Birthday Party (with cake!)
We are looking for people to contribute photos (that we can scan to reprint so the originals will be returned to you) and oral histories. Please email Christine Muir at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or able to help us.
Stay tuned for more details as plans are finalized. Sign up for our monthly newsletter and follow us on social media for all the details!
