Paperweight collection displayed at Taber Library

Feb 26, 2018

The Elizabeth Taber Library has a new display— a newly-acquired 19th-century French paperweight collection.

The collection was donated by the late William W. Claflin Jr. who was a life-long resident of Marion.

Claflin owned and operated Electronic Sales & Services, Inc. in New Bedford until his retirement in 2008. He was very involved in the Marion community, serving as communications specialist on the Marion Fire Department and also as Secretary, Historian and Treasurer of the Marion Firefighters Association for over 50 years. He also served with the Marion Social Club from 1983 until his passing.

The paperweight collection will be on display through June 15 at the Taber Library. For more information, contact the library at 508-748-1252.
