Celebrating the Library at 100
The Roeliff Jansen Community Library is a community — of readers, movie watchers, computers users, music aficionados, volunteers, staff, supporters, etc. etc. It’s these people, involved with the Library in so many ways, who have made it the vital heart of the Roe Jan community. So, for the library’s 100th birthday, with the help of Ancram photographer B. Docktor, we are celebrating the library by celebrating the people. Click here to see some of B’s photos of the people of this community who make the Library such a special place, starting with the kids.
