The dedication was well-attended and after all the City officials weighed in to say their bits and thank yous, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence gave a blessing – sprinkling the sidewalk in front with Milk and Glitter. And the ribbon was cut, and we all crowded in.
Now go! Borrow, read, enjoy, create & liberate!
