The 50th Anniversary of President John F. Kennedy‘s assassination occurs this Friday. In remembrance of his life and the impact of his death, the Tyler library has planned two days of events.

The schedule will include oral histories, films and displays, and visitors will be encouraged to share their memories as well.

“Many of us have first-hand memories of hearing the news of the assassination. Our consciousness will be forever marked by that event,” said City Librarian Mary Vernau. “It is time for a look back to a different period of history when the course of the United States changed forever.”

Admission is free.
