Thanks to all who attended the HairBrained opening party on February 28th; it was a delightful evening! Remember to check the Library’s website for up-to-date information about upcoming hair-themed programming, and to pass through the Rhode Island Room on your next visit to PPL to view our exhibition.
Speaking of programming, we want to share information about two upcoming events in Providence that may be of interest to our fair blog readers:
