“Lincoln County Tribune 1867-1887″ on March 17th

The Celebrate Nebraska 150 program series  at the North Platte Public Library continues at 12:00 PM on Friday, March 17th with another local interest program.  Library staff, Cecelia Lawrence and Sara Aden,  will present.

This presentation grew out of the research done for the History of North Platte Exhibit that is currently on display at the North Platte Public Library.  As researchers were combing through the earliest newspapers from 1885-1889, they were amazed by how much advertising and news have changed over the years.  This program will look at the different Lincoln County Nebraska  newspapers around in the 1800s and the printing presses being used.  The PowerPoint program will showcase some of the unique advertising, editorials, and news articles of the times.

This series has been very popular, so available seats may fill up fast.  Those wishing to attend should call the library at 535-8036, Option #2, to make free seat reservations.  Attendees are welcome to bring a sack lunch; coffee and ice water will be provided.
