Turning Pages: Celebrating 100 Years of the Nelson Public Library

In the 100 years since the founding of the Nelson Public Library much has changed—and will continue to change as we enter an increasingly digital era while, as a society, needing more than ever to find ways to connect and engage with one another. Documenting that change in a comprehensive exhibition hosted by Touchstones Nelson, the exhibitions allows us to celebrate how far we’ve come as well as offer a thoughtful lens to the future. 

Opening reception is Friday, September 11 from 6-9 pm. Also this evening is the exhibition publication book launch, which will be available by donation.

Masks are strongly recommended, registration is required. Call 250-352-9813 or email info@touchstonesnelson.ca to register.
