Program Description

Event Details

Our library history and genealogy programming promotes an awareness of and interest in local heritage. Cindy's presentations are different every month, covering a wide variety of topics, and we often welcome special guests! Intended for ages 18+.

It's the semicentennial (or 50th anniversary) of 1974's "super outbreak" of tornadoes—the second-largest recorded outbreak of tornadoes within a 24-hour period after that of 1911. We're taking a whirlwind dive into this wild weather for a retrospective on the tragedy it left in its wake, and the rebuilding that brought communities together afterward.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact us ahead of the program or event date.
