This fundraiser event supports the Meridian Library District’s Children’s Book Festival—an exciting, free public event taking place on the same day from 10 am to 4 pm.

Figaro Adoption Kit

The Meridian Library District is commemorating its 100th year in the community! In revisiting the library's history, we've discovered an unconventional resident from the 1970s – Figaro, a black & white cat, who adopted the library in September 1976 and lived there for approximately four years. The Meridian History Center has diligently unraveled the mysteries surrounding Figaro, enabling us to reintroduce Figaro to the library, not just in memory. In honor of the centennial, the Foundation has created an exclusive Figaro Adoption Kit as a thank-you to our donors.
