A large crowd gathered for the opening of the new Edgewood branch of the Harford County Public Library. Principal speaker for the event was Mrs. Broadnax Cameron, a long-time campion of library work in the county. The land for the library was donated by the Ward and Bosely Real Estate firm, a $100 gift for furnishings was supplied by the Edgewood Lions Club and floral arrangements for the opening were donated by the First National Bank of Harford County. The new building was designed so that outside walls could be removed and additions made easily for future expansion. Inside, partitions were made of movable bookshelves so that the entire space could be converted to one room. There was an 8,000 volume book collection, a phonograph record collection and 25 magazine titles.
