2021's Challenge is Reading Through the Decades! Read a book published in each decade beginning with the 1900s and ending in the 2010s. You can start at the beginning, or you can go in reverse.

Visit LitHub's Century of Reading series to see some of this decade's best reads!

Genealogy Library: Brown Bag Lunch

...Read More

During this Brown Bag Lunch, we will use the KIC scanner in the Memory Lab to digitize some of the Library's photo albums in order to show the process and how easy it is to digitize the memories you may have already lovingly compiled! You can even bring your own scrapbooks, and let us help you start your digitizing project! Because this is hands-on using the Memory Lab, Zoom is not available for this Brown Bag. Please wear your mask if you choose to attend!
