Party at Powell
Special Anniversaries at Powell Branch Library
The Alma Powell Branch Library will celebrate three special anniversaries with a party this spring.
The Alma Powell Room & Branch Library
The Alma Powell Room first opened at the Lincoln School in 1969. The branch moved to the Douglass Community Center 25 years ago to be closer to neighborhood homes and children.
Barnabee Art Gallery
In 1989, Powell launched the Barnabee Gallery. Dr. Walden Baskerville, a local sculptor and psychologist at WMU, led the effort to create the gallery as a showcase for children's art. The gallery, a regular Art Hop site, now exhibits work by a variety of artists of all ages through the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo.
The party will feature food, music and a presentation to honor Dr. Baskerville for his vision and inspiration. Join us!
