View Public Library in 1960 ABOUT THE MEETING On October 20, 1958, the Mountain View Public Library moved from a temporary location on Dana Street to a brand-new building at 585 Franklin Street, next to the abandoned Mountain View Cemetery. Sixty years have passed since then and much has changed! But the library remains an essential hub of community life. Our next membership meeting on Sunday, November 4, will find us (temporarily) leaving the historic Adobe Building and instead gathering in the newly renovated Community Room of the library. To complement the change in location and celebrate the library’s 60th anniversary on Franklin Street, outgoing MVHA President Candace Bowers will share a slideshow talk on the library’s rich 113+ years of history. We hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be a fascinating talk. SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 2:00-4:00 P.M. BOARD ELECTIONS The meeting will also serve as our biennial Board of Directors election and members are highly encouraged to attend to vote! More details on the election can be found on page 6 of the newsletter. DIA DE LOS MUERTOS Although we are taking a break from hosting our big Dia de los Muertos celebration at the Adobe Building, we are still celebrating the Day of the Dead tradition with our Mountain View–themed “ofrenda” (altar) at the Mountain View History Center. Check it out next time you’re at the library, or before or after our November meeting! MTN. VIEW PUBLIC LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM, 585 FRANKLIN ST., MTN. VIEW 1 CA
