Library system celebrates 50 years

Coupeville resident Joanne Roomes, left, looks on as her mother, Mildred Eisenhauer, 101, signs the guest book at the Coupeville library’s 50th anniversary celebration Saturday at the Coupeville Farmers Market. The guest book and other items from the celebration will be placed into the wooden time capsule at right. Library enthusiasts were given an opportunity to say, “Why I Love My Library,” either on bookmarks or on paper “talking bubbles.” The time capsule will be stored in the library’s cupola to be opened at a future date. - Joe Novotny photo
