On March 21, 1919, Calvin Coolidge signed An Act to Incorporate The Jones Library, Incorporated, for the Purpose of Maintaining a Library in the Town of Amherst. One hundred years later - on March 21, 2019 - the Jones Library will launch a yearlong centennial celebration.
The celebration has multiple elements including monthly programs and events, historical exhibits, book displays, oral histories, and social media posts featuring fun facts about the library. There will even be a library-themed crossword puzzle! Our goal is to engage with our Amherst community in ways that will honor our history and celebrate our future.
