Untapped Treasures Program

Thanks to the 40 people who came out to spend some time with us at Central Library Saturday for the Untapped Treasures Program.  We met some wonderful people and were able to share some of our wonderful collection of historical documents.

Our Interns, Jessica, Paul, Brad, and Kaitlyn did a wonderful job presenting the research they worked on throughout the semester and presenting some of the skills that they had learned a long the way.  They manned the tables and helped answer questions from attendees.

Overall, a successful first try!

Here are some pictures from our event for those unable to make it.
