Come make history with Wright Library!

To continue the Library's 80th Anniversary Celebration, patrons of all ages are invited to submit materials to be buried in a time capsule at the Library for the next 80 years. See the time capsule and make submissions in the Youth Services Department.

The world has changed tremendously since the Library first opened 80 years ago.  Think how fascinating or odd everyday objects from 1939 might feel today!  Let’s delight, inform, and surprise Wright Library users in the year 2099 with ordinary objects from our everyday lives in 2019.  Submit an item by bringing it to the Youth Services Department and adding an ID form (form supplied by Library).  You will be contacted no later than November 22, 2019 with whether the item will be included in the time capsule or returned to you.  All submitted objects must fit inside a small, carry-on suitcase.  The last day to submit items is October 31, 2019.  The full contents of the Time Capsule will be revealed at the library's 80th Jubilee Celebration on Sunday, December 8.
