Explore the history of our great state through the Library’s historical collection of magazines and newspapers. Discover how people, places, and events were depicted in the print media of the day. The Library has a treasure trove of magazines and newspapers that date back to the 1800’s. We have pulled these gems out of storage and are ready to share them with you. A group of five librarians have combed the historical periodicals and discovered the juiciest, most fascinating tidbits of Kansas history to present to you that night. If you love history, if you love Kansas, if you love looking at old magazines, you will love this program. You’ll learn how one reporter covered Kansas’ statehood battle, what Eisenhower thought about growing up in Abilene, why Kansas was called the beer state, and what it was like during a day out at a Kansas sheep farm. We look forward to seeing you, and together we’ll take a stroll through the last 150 years in Kansas.
