Coronation Street Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

The long-running British drama - Coronation Street - is celebrating its 50th anniversary today - December 9. Based in the fictional Manchester area of Weatherfield, Corrie follows the trials and tributionals of its working class characters. Canadians are some of the most keen fans of this television serial.

The Lincoln Public Library has a wide range of Corrie books and DVDs.

New additions to the library's collection include the movie DVD Romanian Holiday featuring Roy and Hailey Cropper and 50 Years On The Street: My Life With Ken Barlow by William Roache.

Raise a pint to Ken, Dierdre, Rita, Betty and all the other fasinating and infuriating characters on Coronation Street.

Happy Birthday Corrie!
