The Scottsdale Library will host a series of free monthly events to showcase the history of the city beginning Thursday, February 22.
The events will all take place at the Civic Center branch from 6pm to 7pm, and will be hosted by Scottsdale historians and authors Joan Fudala and Doug Sydnor. Each session will have a theme, and will feature photos, videos and other historic documents collected by the City.
The first event on February 22 will focus on Scottsdale Special Events History. Subsequent events that are already planned include:
- Scottsdale Art History on Thursday, March 8
- Scottsdale’s History of Preservation on Thursday, April 12
- Scottsdale’s Historic Properties & Architectural History on Thursday, May 17
The salon series will promote the Library’s Scottsdale Heritage Connection, a project of the Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library to create a permanent exhibition that showcases all of the City’s historical documents.
