The Friends of the J. V. Fletcher Library invite you to attend our 2016 Annual Meeting

Thursday, November 3
Annual Meeting 7:00 pm
Featured Speaker 7:30 pm

Our featured speaker is Joseph Bagley.  He is the Boston City Archaeologist, and author of "A History of Boston in 50 Artifacts."  Joe joined the City Archaeology Program in 2011 as Boston’s fourth City Archaeologist. Bagley curates a growing repository of archaeological collections currently housed at the City Archaeology Laboratory in West Roxbury, acts as the review and compliance agent for below-ground cultural resources in the city, educates the public in archaeology through a number of city programs, manages Rainsford Island, and manages the Archaeology Programs social media platforms. “A History of Boston in 50 Artifacts” offers a unique and accessible introduction to Boston’s history and physical culture while revealing the ways objects can offer a tantalizing entrée into our past. 

Refreshments will be served.

The Friends' Annual Meeting, on Thursday, November 3, starts at 7 p.m. The meeting includes voting for the slate of officers and approving changes to the bylaws.  Only Friends members can vote. Memberships are available at the door. Joseph Bagley's talk, starting at 7:30, is free and open to all.
