A series of noon hour presentations about the history of Lincoln County continues at noon on Friday, March 17, with “Lincoln County Tribune 1867-1887: a Look at Advertising and News From Over 100 Years Ago.”The presentations are in conjunction with 150th anniversary of Nebraska statehood. Library director Cecelia Lawrence and IT specialist Sara Aden will present the program.
This presentation grew out of the research 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 1885-89, 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 150th anniversary series has been very popular, so seats may fill up fast. 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.
