Richard C. Rossi Dedication

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Main Library
449 Broadway
Beech Room

The City Manager’s Office and Cambridge Public Library Board of Trustees have jointly decided to rename the Beech Room at the Main Library to the Richard C. Rossi Room in honor of the former City Manager. Mr. Rossi worked diligently for the City of Cambridge for many years. He also championed on behalf of the Library by leading Library 21, the group that conducted outreach among the Cambridge community to develop a vision for the new Main Library, and by participating on the Steering Committee that directed the efforts of the Library construction project.

A dedication ceremony for Mr. Rossi will be held at the Main Library at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, November 13.
