Boca Raton Meets Abraham Lincoln

Updated: May 14, 2020

On November 21st, the Betty Grinnan Friends of the Library Program for American History hosted an event for the members to meet the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln! Upon entering the library, I was personally greeted by the man himself. Much to my excitement, after introducing myself, Lincoln said, “what a crackerjack name!” I just became friends with Abraham Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln talked to members as everyone gathered, engaging in cordial conversation and answering questions about his life.
