Browne Popular Culture Library Open House and Birthday Celebration

Tuesday, March 12 at 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Jerome Library, 4th Floor, Jerome Library
Jerome Library, Bowling Green, OH 43403

The Browne Popular Culture Library first opened in March 1969 as a home for things that were part of American life but couldn’t be found in an academic library like comic books, detective novels, postcards, and so much more.

In the 50 years since we opened, a few things have changed. So what better time to throw a combination open house/birthday party? Join us on March 12 from 4-7pm on the 4th floor of Jerome Library to take tours, learn more about the library’s history, see some of our cool collections, and of course, have some birthday cake!

Can’t make it to the party? We’d love for you to send us a birthday card! We want cards from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, US Territories, other countries, you name it. We’ll add all of them to our greeting card collection for future generations to appreciate.

Here’s the address:

Help us make March 12, 2019 the best birthday a library could ask for!  For questions, contact Steve Ammidown at sammido@bgsu.edu
