Making Sense Out of Shiloh

Despite the rain, we had a great turnout last night for Part III of our continuing series Making Sense of the American Civil War.  We hope that everyone will join us again for Part IV: The Shape of War on Thursday, March 14th at 6:00 pm.

Unfortunately, last night’s session was not recorded.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Genealogy Workshops

Our biannual genealogy workshops are almost here.  Join us each Wednesday in October to learn more about how to research and explore your family’s history.  These free classes will take place in the library’s meeting rooms from 1-3 pm each week of October, with a different area of interest being explored each week.  If you plan to attend, please call the History Department at 415.2742 to reserve a seat and ensure that we have handouts for you.
