Celebrate Montclair Library’s 85th anniversary with us! – 6:00-7:45pm

The Montclair branch library opened in March of 1930. This month we are celebrating our 85th anniversary as a beloved and busy community resource. There will be refreshments.

Architect Arrol Gellner will speak about the Storybook Style of architecture (of which the Montclair branch is an example) and show slides. Mr. Gellner has written three books on period design, including Storybook Style: America’s Whimsical Homes of the Twenties.

Annalee Allen will speak about the development of the Montclair neighborhood and the City of Oakland at the time the library was built. Ms. Allen is an Oakland historian, Tribune columnist and author of several books on Oakland history.
