Tomorrow’s fun, festive Westport Library Transformation Project ribbon-cutting ceremony just got more high-powered.
Governor Lamont has agreed to do the honors.
The event starts promptly at 11 a.m. Everyone will gather on Jesup Green, at the new “Grand Staircase.”
Andrew Wilk will introduce First Selectman Jim Marpe. He’ll say a few words, and introduce the governor.
After the ribbon-cutting, the Hartford Hot Several Brass Band will play. They’ll lead the crowd into the new Library. The Forum will be the site of the first official event: a few short words from Library board president Iain Bruce, project architect Henry Myerberg, and executive director Bill Harmer.
Then comes 5 hours of interactive fun. Bands, artists, live podcasts, a performance by world-renowned/Westport neighbor pianist Frederic Chiu, children’s music, discussions, acoustic guitar, dance, exhibits, MakerSpace demos — that and much more is in store.
See you at the Grand Staircase!
