This book that was on exhibit for "The Beverly Farms Social Library" display (1806-1842), gives advice for a widower to choose a second wife. Throw back to the good old days, or something like that...  #tbt #100yearsatthefarms #vintagebooks #weirdadvice #bookstagram #rarebooks #beverlyfarms #library #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform

Happy world picture day! Picture of a picture: Suzanne, the head librarian in 1972, helping some children check out their books. Before the 2004 renovation, the front desk was located in the reading room! Besides the desk, almost everything else in the reading room has remained just as it did the day the library was built in 1916!

Just came across these beautiful blueprints of the Farms Branch Library by Loring & Leland Architects. Date of design: 7-10-15... As if it were yesterday!

The original front desk in 1916 was positioned in the main reading room underneath the Alice D. Curtis clock and the between the book stacks that are still with us today.

Our main reading room in 1916 doesn't look much different today. A children's room and additional book stacks downstairs were added in the 2004 addition and renovation. 100 years at the Farms!

The Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916 were a series of shark attacks along the coast of New Jersey that spanned a number of days from July 1-July 12, killing 4 and injuring one other. These horrifying events later inspired Peter Benchley to write his famous novel "Jaws", published in 1974! Now 100 years later and time does not diminish the creepiness and realness of the 1916 attacks.
