Did you ever wish you could be an archaeologist? Or, did you ever wonder what it’s like to be one? Indulge your inner Indiana Jones with a day full of Archaeological fun for all ages! There will be lectures, demonstrations and interactive experiences throughout the library. The speakers are local experts who know that history is everywhere (right beneath us, actually). Join us to learn more about our local history, and find out how we can all get involved. Find more information about Archaeology Day!
