Event Details

This is a virtual meeting through Zoom

Professor Jason Vance from Middle Tennessee State University will share findings from his research on scrapbooks created as part of the Kentucky Pack Horse Libraries project that ran from 1936-1943. Pack horse librarians assembled these scrapbooks using local recipes, hand-drawn quilt patterns, and clippings from donated magazines. The scrapbooks then became part of the pack horse libraries’ circulating collections. Registration begins Wednesday, February 24.

Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brighton District Library
