Puget Sound: A Maritime Highway

From canoes to the mosquito fleet to our modern day ferry system, boats have been a principal means of travel around Puget Sound. In a landscape domina-  nated by forest and sea, water was often the best way to get from point A to point B. This presentation by David B. Williams will explore the 13,000-year history of transportation on this extraordinary waterway.

This will be the Library Speaker Series 
presentation on Zoom at 2:00, Friday, 
April 9.                    Click here to register:

Our latest exhibit is "Laundry: A Chore, An Art, A Living"

Doing the laundry in the 1800's to early 1900's 
was a demanding event. The exhibit explores 
the chore of washing, the art of combining 
diverse additives to achieve laundry success, 
and the role of being a laundress in 
empowering women with their own income.
