Parham Library Commemorates 1969

The year 1969 was a big one for the US, pop-culture, and news. It was the year of the first moon landing, Woodstock, and of course the first ever episode of TV’s The Brady Bunch, just to name a few.

If you have a chance, stop by the Parham library where we have set up a display in honor of this iconic year.

If you simply can’t wait, take a minute to check out our 1969 Spotify Playlist which includes many popular songs from the day. It is sure to inspire nostalgia and will definitely get your feet tapping. (Perhaps they’ll tap all the way over to the library?)
