Veteran’s Day Program: Who IS Roger Clark? Why WAS the Pittsfield Library named after him?

Saturday, November 11, 2017 4 p.m.–PITTSFIELD– Roger Clark Memorial Library is grateful to offer a Veterans Day Program, with the aid of a Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) Rural Library mini grant we received this summer. We welcome individuals of all ages to attend. We have added some new books to our collection, dedicated to Veterans and war stories for all ages and will read one of these books for kids entitled, Veterans: Heroes In our Neighborhood, originally published in 2012, by author Valerie Pfundstein and illustrator Aaron Anderson. Meet Roger’s family to hear his story and see us unveil part one of our two part rededication to display more of his story on the wall that contains his personal books.

RC library logoRCML, formerly The Pittsfield Free Library, originated in 1901, was operated out of the homes of library board members and volunteers.  In 1973, the library found a permanent home in the basement of the Town Office building. On September 8th at 4 pm, a dedication ceremony took place to rename the library the Roger Clark Memorial Library with the aid of full color guard. But Why? Come to our current location, on the top floor of 40 Village Green, in Pittsfield to find out.
