Hear Ye! Reading of Malden Declaration on July 3

Please join Mayor Gary Christenson for the commencement of a new Malden tradition to kick off the City’s July 4th festivities.  The reading of the May 27, 1776 document that contains the “Instructions of the Inhabitants of Malden, Massachusetts to their Representatives in Congress” will be read on the lawn of the Malden Public Library on Friday, July 3rd at 6:00 PM rain or shine. Local Historian and period actor Tom Coots will perform the reenactment. The document was recently rediscovered when the Mayor was searching for a historic Malden relic to display at the State House.  William Fowler, a former Malden resident and distinguished Professor of History at Northeastern University will be an invited special guest. Mr. Fowler is a published author on American History and wrote an article published in the Boston Globe on July 4th, 2001 titled “For the Real Birthplace of the Revolution, Look to Malden.”  This document is credited as a precursor to the Declaration of Independence written in July of 1776 when the Continental Congress formally declared their independence from England.


Summer Fun—Crochet

Join us on Tuesday, July 7th from 6-8:30 pm. and create pair of baby booties! Fiber artist Terese Brennan will assist you in creating a pair of baby booties that we will donate to a local hospital. All are welcome, whether you’ve been crocheting for years or never picked up a hook.

Malden Public Library is happy to provide all supplies free of charge. You may bring your own hook if you prefer. We will use size 4 mm (US G/6).

By the end of the night you will go home with the pattern for the booties as well as the start of a new passion!

Space is limited, so please call the Library at 781.324.0218 or drop in to sign up.
