Landmarks of learning

(Continued)

But showing persistence similar to that of Emma Andrews, members started an Andrews Branch Improvement Association. After an “Emma Forever” fundraising campaign in 2010, the library reopened as the Emma L. Andrews Library and Community Center.

It is now staffed by volunteers and provides books, periodicals, audio-visual materials and programs to all residents of the city.

The center is managed under the auspices of the city, not the municipal library system, and is run by volunteers.

Today Newburyport’s libraries stand as prevailing landmarks that reflect the past and ongoing institutions that serve the community’s long interest in learning.
