Telling Temescal Stories

Come and be the first group of neighborhood residents and community members to contribute a story related to the Temescal District that will become part of the legacy of the branch's second century of service to the community. This project, part of an on-going series of programs and events that the branch centennial celebration, will result in a collection of personal stories, memoirs, commentaries, etc., that will be included in the library's Jeff Norman Archive documenting the history of the Temescal District. Copies of any contributions will be also be made for a time capsule being assembled for discovery by future library users at the library's bicentennial in 2118.
