A ceremony marking the arrival of two bronze lion statues to be installed at the Belleville Public Library has been rescheduled for Thursday, Nov 29 at 3:30 pm at the library’s main branch on Washington Avenue.
The lions are being installed to commemorate the library’s 100th anniversary and are modeled after the statues gracing the front of the New York Public Library. Those statues are dubbed “Patience” and “Fortitude”.
The bronze statues in Belleville will be welcomed with a parade up Washington Avenue led by marchers from the Belleville High School band.
The ceremony was originally scheduled to be held several weeks ago but was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy.
