Marching with the Library on Main Street

4 July 2015

There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library

So said Andrew Carnegie and so we celebrate the freedom to read and march with the library down Main Street on the 4th of July, as we do every year.

This was the first year that the parade route was reversed and instead of starting downtown and ending on Idlewild Street it started on Main Street near Idlewild and marched towards downtown. Most of the parade did not march on Idlewild Street at all – in fact other than the various cars for Miss Fire Prevention etc very little of the parade was visible to the denizens of Idlewild Street who for so many ears have simply set up chairs on their lawns or glanced out their windows to see the parade go by.
