As part of our Columbia Public Library centennial, take a guided walking tour of the Columbia Cemetery and learn about the early advocates for a public library. We'll discuss the lives and tombstones of our founding mothers and fathers! Meet in the library lobby and we'll walk to the cemetery. All ages; 12 and younger, please bring an adult. If raining, it will be rescheduled for Monday, June 6.

As part of our Columbia Public Library centennial, take a guided walking tour of the Columbia Cemetery and learn about the early advocates for a public library. Before there was a Columbia Public Library, there was a Columbia Library Association, beginning in November 1866. This organization failed, and the books they'd collected burned in the fire of Academic Hall in 1892, but nearly eight years later, the women of the Tuesday Club made establishing a Columbia Free Library their main goal and opened a library in the O'Rear building on Broadway in April 1899. We'll discuss the lives and tombstones of these founding mothers and fathers of the library movement in Columbia.

We will meet in the library lobby and walk down the block to the cemetery.

All ages. Those 12 and younger, please bring an adult with you. If raining, the tour will be rescheduled for Monday, June 6.
