“Bringing Communities Together: the Transcontinental Railroad” In 1978, the month of May was officially chosen to commemorate the achievements of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans. The American Transcontinental Railroad was completed on May 10, 1869, of which the majority of workers who laid the tracks were Chinese. Join us at the library in honoring the generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched our history throughout the centuries. Our display will focus on the Transcontinental Railroad and the race to link the nation. In addition, we’ll feature books, films and audio materials on Asian culture, religion, historical personalities, cooking and more.

Contact the library for details. Movies are shown on the big screen TV. Bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Children, grades 5, and below must be accompanied by an adult.
