2009 Photo Contest Exhibit Opens

Bloggers were well represented at the Plainfield Public Library's reception and awards presentation Saturday. Jackie, Dan and I were among a large group of photographers present, including Evergreen School students who had a special exhibit. I did not take notes (trying to enjoy myself) so can't give a nuts-and-bolts report. The exhibit will be up all month, so go take a look.

Library Director Joe Da Rold announced the theme for next year, which is "East Side, West Side, All Around the Town." At home I got out my copy of "The East Enders" by A.J. Wood for ideas. I think the Maddalonese Society building has changed hands and history is not standing still either in the East End or West End, so now's the time to get started. Maybe there is a fig tree getting bundled up for the winter in the East End and is this the year for the West End Reunion?

All these photos become part of the library's permanent collection and will be digitized for online viewing. Joe has a background in museum work and has done a fine job of expanding the library's cultural reach. A recent exhibit, "Plainfield: Lost But Not Forgotten," will be made into a book, Joe announced. Check out the library's very fine web site for more information and be sure to sign up for the newsletter.
