For 100 years the library in Bethlehem occupied three small rooms in Town Hall. But over the weekend that changed with opening of a new library on Main Street. It was the conclusion of a tale involving a mystery donor, a brother who moved far away and a sister who stayed in the North Country.
At the tale’s center were two people.
One was Muriel Brown, who for more than three decades was the town’s beloved librarian.
The other was her brother, Arthur Jobin, known to the family as “Bud.”
Both grew up in Bethlehem.
