In August 2004, the Alliance Memory website was dedicated. It was a joint project between the historical organizations in the City of Alliance and Rodman Public Library, overseen by Karen Perone. Karen will present an overview of the project and the people involved with making this online scrapbook a reality showing examples of the 3,000 items that are included and what the future looks like for the continuation and expansion of this community treasure. -klp
Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m., as we demonstrate Kumihimo and Zentangle.
