The Scottsdale Public Library will be continuing its salon series celebrating the history of Scottsdale in September with three free events.
While the previous salon series showcased all its events at the Civic Center branch, this fall’s series will offer programming at three different Library branches.
Just in time for the new school year, the event on Thursday, September 8 will feature A History of Scottsdale’s Schools at Mustang Library from 6pm to 7pm.
Join us at Civic Center Library on Thursday, October 11 for Celebrate 68! 50th Anniversary of Scottsdale’s Civic Center from 6pm to 7pm. This will also include a salute to the Civic Center Architect, Bennie Gonzales.
The last event will help prepare for Scottsdale’s winter visitors with Scottsdale’s Tourism & Resort History. It will take place Thursday, November 15 from 6pm to 7pm at Appaloosa Library, which will turn 10 years old in 2019.
All events are hosted by Scottsdale historians and authors Joan Fudala and Doug Sydnor. They will include photos, videos and other historic documents that will be featured in the Scottsdale Heritage Connection (SHC).
The SHC is a permanent exhibition opening set to open in 2019 to showcase all of the City of Scottsdale’s historical documents. It is being funded through a capital campaign by the Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library.
