The formal dedication for the new Official Texas Historic Marker for the Quakertown Community will be held this coming Saturday February 16, 2013 at 10:00a.m. at the Denton Civic Center 321 E. McKinney St. Librarian Laura Douglas was involved in writing the historic narrative as part of the marker application process and will receive a Certificate of Commendation. You may know her from visiting the Special Collections Department here at the Fowler Library.
We have an exhibit of photos, books and maps of Quakertown at the Emily Fowler Library running through the end February in the Special Collections department and an archive of Quakertown history available if you wish to learn more.
Also, mark your calendars for an upcoming program at the Emily Fowler Library about Quakertown on March 23 to be presented by Kim Cupit, Curator of Collections at the Courthouse On The Square Museum.
