The launch of The History of Pakenham 1823-2023 by Robert Gardiner at the Stewart Community Centre was fantastic! 200+ folks came out. The library was so happy to be a part of this event. Robert’s presentation & storytelling was funny, informative, entertaining & inspiring! The book is available for purchase from the Pakenham 1840s General Store and Bakery, and will soon be available to borrow from both library branches.
