The Library Story: From Grocery Shelf to Gigabytes

Tuesday, June 18, 2013
7pm, The Octagon, Main Gallery

The public library in Ames grew from loaned space in a grocery store in 1892 to the multi-story, high tech, growing facility we know today. Learn about the dedicated group of local citizens - especially Ames women - who sought to ensure the existence of a library in our city, and the influential leaders who built this institution into the thriving community resource we now enjoy!

Please join Kathy Svec as she follows Ames Public Library through over 100 years of growth and change.
