Heart of Chesapeake Country

The Friends of the Library have won a grant from The Heart of Chesapeake Country Heritage Area Historic Resources Enrichment Fund to be used to create and install a historic marker at the Cambridge Library honoring Dorchester native and literary giant, John Barth.  A walking tour brochure will also be developed as part of the grant highlighting local sites associated with Barth’s work.  A dedication of the marker is planned for May 2010 to coincide with Barth’s 80th birthday!
