Block Parties

Summer Block Parties are a wonderful local tradition, bringing together neighbors of all ages for fun, games and dancing in the street.

We have many photographs of local Block Parties and neighborhood celebrations taken over the years and would be very grateful if you could help us identify the people in these photographs, tell us where and when they were taken and pass on your memories of the celebrations.  

Click the Contact Us tab above or stop in the Library and share your knowledge in person.  We look forward to hearing from you!
