The Best of 2011

One of the many items [old and new] enjoyed and recommended by Burbank Public Library staff during 2011 for your consideration:
As we end Burbank’s Centennial Birthday Celebration year, what could be better for a Best of 2011 list than a mention of Burbank centennial history 1911-2011 : celebrating our past and embracing our future

Chock full of photographs [snapshot preview here] of Burbank throughout the last 100 years that covers City services, industries, businesses and many other aspects of Burbank life, this book is a nice nostalgic “blast from your past” for any long time resident. Available for purchase for just a little while longer, get yourself a copy and see if you too can find some memories. For me the “rock house on Olive”, Kiko’s, Alexander’s, the Golden Mall and, of course, public Public Library photographs are ones that I nod my head and state “Cool, I remember that.”

This book is also available both in Reference collections and for checkout at all three Burbank Public Library branches.
