Jarrettsville exhibit will explore Harford's 'love affair' with the automobile, library official says

A roving Smithsonian Museum exhibit coming to Harford County Public Library branches will debut at the Jarrettsville branch and feature Harford County's "love affair" with the automobile.

The library system is partnering with local organizations to bring a variety of events to the area this spring, Library Foundation Director Amber Shrodes explained during the Jarrettsville Community Council meeting held at Keene Dodge Wednesday evening.

In addition to the library exhibit, there will also be a car show on April 14, called "Romancing the Chrome."

The library has teamed up with the Jarrettsville Lions to put on the car show at Jarrett's Field, Shrodes said, adding that Keene Dodge, which also hosted Wednesday's meeting, is the headlining sponsor for the show.

The event will be free for spectators and costs $15 to enter. It isn't just for classic cars either, Shrodes said, but any car that has an "exceptional" story to tell.

The Journey Stories exhibit is about immigration and transportation and the Harford County Public Library won a grant to be able to participate in it, she added. Twenty-five vendors have already signed up, including Jarrettsville Creamery, which provided refreshments for the council meeting.

Other business

Chief Rudy Walter and Assistant Chiefs Mark Grubb and Craig Messenger, all of the Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company, also attended the community council meeting to give a presentation on the history of the fire company and how it operates.
