Feb program: Northern Libraries

Our February program will be

“George C Thomas Memorial Library and other Northern pre-1940’s Libraries”, by Aldean Kilbourn.

Libraries have existed in the North since the early days of the Gold Rush, both in the Yukon and in Alaska.  Libraries from Outside were asked to send their worn-out books,  but without exception, there was hunger for reading material, and there never seemed to be enough to go around.

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2023, at 6pm in person at the Alaska Mining Hall of Fame, 406 Cushman St, Fairbanks.

All meetings are open to the public and are free to attend. Light refreshments are served. Please come, and be inspired to work on your family tree!
