We’re giving you more bang for your buck with today’s 125th Anniversary Fact because this week’s post is actually MANY facts in one! For the last few weeks we’ve been sharing information about our incredible painted dome here at the Blackstone, and this past Saturday we hosted Joel Dryer for a talk all about the artist who painted the murals. His talk was extremely informative and included information about not just Oliver Dennett Grover, but also Timothy Blackstone, the man who funded the library, and Solon Spencer Beman, the architect behind the library. This librarian certainly learned some new things, and we’re sure you will to! Check out our recording of the talk on our YouTube channel.
