Are you curious about your family’s history or what it was like to live in Bangor 100 years ago? Did you know that Bangor’s earliest newspaper is available online? Have you heard of the Daily Bee or the Bangorean? Come to our workshop on discovering local history through newspapers to find out more!

This workshop will provide strategies for using historical papers to uncover the past.

We will end in the local history room so that you can begin doing your own research.
