Bicentennial Celebration Day at Central Library
As part of the Indianapolis Public Library’s celebration of Indiana’s bicentennial, families and individuals of all ages are invited to the Statehood Celebration Day from noon to 5 p.m. on December 11 at the Central Library in downtown Indy. As Indiana was the nineteenth state to enter the Union on December 11, 1816, the public library has presented many bicentennial-related events focusing on Indiana history and culture throughout this year.
Highlighting the festivities will be a program presented by author, historian and local radio host Nelson Price, entitled, Famous Hoosier Women: Historic and Contemporary Legends. His presentation will include displays of photos, researched stories and personalized accounts from interviews of famous Indiana women.
Also featured is a book signing by Donna Griffin, author of The Twelve Days of Christmas in Indiana, as well as music, crafts and other activities for all ages.
