Local history rarely occupies a central place in a public library's services. Are there creative or innovative ways that local history can be used to fulfill a library's mission? How can we ensure our communities know about our genealogical and historical resources? How can we use our knowledge (and our community's) about the past to enrich the present? These questions will be answered through a discussion of programs, services, or strategies people have experience with. This year's discussion group will also be a place to explore our broader vision for local history in libraries.
