If there were a time capsule from the founding of the library, it would no doubt offer fascinating insights into the time. Alas, there is not. We cannot go back in time and change that fact, but we can offer up our take on modern life to the library 100 years from now. We will be burying a time capsule at the end of May, 2015, to be opened in 2115.
We invite individuals to submit items for the time capsule: letters about contemporary life, small toys, reviews of current movies, books, etc. Another option would be a list of ideas of what life – or libraries – might be like in 100 years, and future residents can see how accurate our predictions were. Please bring these items in by May 20th. While what will be included is at the library's discretion, we will endeavor to include as much as possible.
Please join us for the burial of the time capsule, which will take place in the library's Reading Garden on Saturday, May 30th at 2:00 pm. We will review what was put in the capsule, lower the capsule to its home for the next 100 years, and place the marker to let the future know where the capsule is buried.
