The John M. Cuelenaere Public Library is celebrating its 100th anniversary in a big way.
Some of the 100 wheels expected to fill the library's parking lot on Saturday began rolling in on Friday, including a street sweeper and a zamboni machine.
During the family friendly event, set to take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the parking lot will be packed full, with 100 wheels representing all the library’s 100 years in the city.
A barbecue and face painting will also take place throughout the day.
Although First Avenue East will be closed for the day, library director Alex Juorio notes that the building is still accessible from 12th Street East, and that there’s parking available at the Ashly Cabinets & Windows parking lot off of 13th Street, near its intersection with First Avenue East.
