|Tampa Tribune's report on the library's dedication, July 14, 1989|
Special items uncovered at the event included: a 1994 edition of the Friends of College Hill Library's cookbook, I Don't Measure that Stuff; a stack of newspaper articles about the library and its renaming; Friends of the Library and staff snapshots; and vintage files on the many programs the library has hosted over the years.
The library also hosted a panel discussion featuring our local Negro League Baseball Players, Clifford "Quack" Brown and Walter "Dirk" Gibbons, moderated by fan Neil Armstrong. In addition to talking about playing for the Negro League, the discussion also included the community's historic Belmont Heights Little League, which Cliff Brown had coached, a collection of vintage newspaper clippings about the team, and some of Walter Gibbon's personal baseball photos. Enjoy some pictures from the event!
