Designer with local ties turning 100

Noted designer and Bartholomew County Public Library architect I.M. Pei turns 100 on April 26. The library staff will be serving cookies while they last that day to mark the occasion. Prior to the birthday date, a couple of “birthday stations” in the building will allow members of the public to draw a picture of the building, color a pre-made picture or sign their name to a book wishing Pei well.
