Stay Golden at the Library

Thirty-seven years ago today, The Golden Girls premiered on NBC. It would go on to run for seven seasons, and every single main cast member won an Emmy for her performance during the show’s run.

Thanks to syndication and streaming, the show continued to gain new fans long after it went off the air, and today fans of all ages celebrate the show and characters with conferences, live theater tributes, and, of course, lots of books. 

You can also see the Girls via our Roku content. In the film My First Love, available on Amazon Prime Video, Bea Arthur actually wears many of her costumes from The Golden Girls. And of course, you can stream the original series and the short-lived spin-off The Golden Palace on Hulu. So after you visit the library, bake (or buy) a cheesecake, and enjoy some time with the Girls. And thank you for being a library friend!
