ERIE, Pa. -- This week marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Blasco Memorial Library on Erie's bayfront.
To celebrate the occasion, friends of the Erie County Public Library sponsored a breakfast gathering inside the library, 160 E. Front St., for all its supporters throughout the years.
The event also served as a preview of Erie County's 2017 transformation plans for the library, which include the creation of an "idea lab" and other renovations.
“We've had about 10 million people come through this building in the 20 years we've been open,” executive director of the library Mary Rennie said. “We've hosted countless events. We are a community center for knowledge, and knowledge creation because that is the name of the game now. It's all about social connections.”
The Blasco Library officially opened on Dec. 23, 1996.
