Slides for History Project Talk on Hopewell Libraries

Our webinar on the the History Project, “Discover Hopewell Valley History from Home,” was held on Sunday, May 17, 2020, hosted by the Pennington Public Library and co-sponsored by the Hopewell Valley Historical Society and The Hopewell Museum.

Thanks to the 60+ people who joined in, and for the interesting questions.

The presentation started with an overview of the the Project, and then walked through a case study of using the materials that we’ve accumulated to investigate the beginnings of public libraries in Hopewell. See the earlier blog post, and download the full “History of the Hopewell Public Library” paper (PDF) for the gory historical details.

The second half of the presentation was a “live” demo of the History Project sites. Just click over to the three sites to explore them yourself (and check under the About menu for documentation):
