A Superfine New Year's Eve Celebration

December 31, 2017 at 8:30pm

Enjoy A Superfine Ney Year's Eve Celebration Among Original Templar Cars.

Dress in 1920's attire and close out 2017 with live music, dancing, entertainment, food stations, open wine and beet bar, and an authentic speakeasy serving classic cocktails for a fee.

This one-time only event marks the 100th anniversary of the Templar Factory Building, built in 1917, and the Templar cars, which were produced in this building from 1918 to 1924. The company ceased production in 1924. Lake Erie Screw later occupied the building, thus the building is affectionately known as the Screw Factory. This building and the Templar Cars are part of Lakewood's rich history.

A History of Medications

We’ve come a long way from the development of the first pharmaceutical drug in 1898. That was the familiar, over-the-counter remedy of first resort we know as Bayer’s Aspirin. Tom Strong, health educator and patient advocate, will take us from there in a discussion of the evolution of drugs over the past one hundred years. He will cover not only how medication has dramatically changed the treatment of disease but also the dark side of prescription medications, with their side effects, costs, and scandals. Many will remember Mr. Strong for his talk last year on infectious diseases.

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium
