Firefighters with the Perry Volunteer Fire Department responded promptly Tuesday morning to a fire alarm reported at the Carnegie Library Museum in downtown Perry.
The fire department was dispatched about 10:15 a.m., and all was found well at the 118-year-old library, which reopened this month after a two-year, pandemic-forced closure. The fire alarm was reset.
Hometown Heritage is housed at the Carnegie Library Museum, combining the assets of two of Perry’s richest historical resources.
Plans are in the making for a March evet featuring Beth Hoffman, author of “Bet the Farm: The Dollars and Sense of Growing Food in America.” The 2021 work of creative nonfiction offers “a first-hand account of the perils of farming today and a personal exploration of more just and sustainable ways of producing food,” according to the book’s publisher.
