Library to Screen Inauguration

From Library Director Joe DaRold:

"The public is invited to the Plainfield Public Library on January 20th to view cable coverage of the inauguration of President Barack Obama. The Library will open its large community room to provide a larger-than-life experience live on its 12-foot screen. The historic ceremony is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. and end at 12 noon.

Reservations are not required, and admission is free. The Library is located at 800 Park Avenue in Plainfield, between 8th and 9th Streets. The building is handicapped accessible."

The Senior Center is also planning a viewing of the inauguration of the first African American president, along with prayers by the Rev. Tracey Brown for President Barack Obama's well-being.

Because City Council members are planning to attend the inauguration, Monday's agenda setting session will be followed by a regular meeting next Thursday. The regular meeting would otherwise have been held on Tuesday, Jan. 20 due to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
