Ruth Jane Roberts Day Held at NB Library

The Children’s Room of the North Baltimore Public Library has been named for Mrs. Ruth Jane Roberts….

Despite a day of multiple storms and tornado sirens, the North Baltimore Public Library hosted Ruth Jane Roberts Day on Wednesday, June 5th. The evening was set aside to honor Ruth Jane Roberts who the children’s collection is named for and to continue our 100th Birthday Celebration.  Bounce houses, balloons, activities and treats were enjoyed by all ages. The festivities were moved inside due to the rain. 

At the party it was announced that the Children’s Room will now also be named for Mrs. Ruth Jane Roberts in addition to the Children’s Collection that currently bears her name.
