Discover New Pathways to your Past: Selected African-American Resources at the Main Library Set for February 3, 2:00-3:30 p.m.

A wealth of resources on African-American history will be the topic of a mini-workshop at the Main Library, 800 Vine Street, on Saturday, February 3, 2:00-3:30 p.m.

Discover New Pathways to Your Past: Selected African-American Resources at the Main Library features some of the Library's lesser-known treasures available in several subject departments. "While we have a wealth of material on African-American history in the History & Genealogy Department, many other departments also have vital information that might be useful when doing historical research," said Karen Beiser, Assistant Manager in the department.

Staff from the History & Genealogy Department, as well as Education & Religion, Government & Business, Magazines & Newspapers, and Art & Music, will make presentations about the resources available. "There are many collections and reference tools which will help to trace historical events," said Ms. Beiser. Among them:

The free program is open to the public, and will be held in the Huenefeld Tower Room, third floor. For additional information contact the History & Genealogy Department at 513-369-6905.
