From City Librarian Scott Hughes:
Not by sight (site), but by Faith. 755 Central Avenue is no longer the old Newfield Library or the Charles Smith Center. It is the soon to be NEW Newfield Library. We closed on it this afternoon after 8 years of dreaming. IN my LIFETIME !!

Greatest of Modern leviathans in tow…and will reach port.
The White Star liner Titanic, having transferred her passengers to the Parisian and Carpathian was, at 2:00 this afternoon, being towed to Halifax by the Virginian, of the Allan line. The Virginian passed a line to the Titanic as soon as the passengers had been transferred and the latest word received by wireless was that there was no doubt that the new liner would reach port.
Agents of the White Star line at Halifax have arranged to have wrecking tugs sent out to aid the Virginian and her tow into port.
