September  5-8, 2017

Birds eye view: Different perspectives comes with greater knowledge.  Ever wonder what a town or a city looks like from above? Come on over to Shields Library to view these amazing 19th century maps and more!  We should call it “Maps of the Day”, because we cannot decide on just one map for each day.

Happy Labor Day!  The Map Collection will be closed on Monday, Sept 4.
