Local News

The following is a news release from the Lubbock Public Library:

Beginning Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 1 p.m. the Mahon Library, 1306 9th Street, presents “The Way Things Were: Texas Settlers and Their Buildings, 1860s-1930s,” an exhibition by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

“The Way Things Were” focuses on family and community life of Texas settlers as reflected in old buildings. The exhibition looks at early Texas buildings for information about settlers’ visions of community and progress and their accommodation to the physical demands and economic realities of everyday life. Print resources that accompany the exhibit help audiences explore our cultural heritage, modern attitudes toward the past and our duty to future generations.

The exhibition will be available to the public from Sunday, March 3, 2019 to Sunday March 31, 2019. It is part of the Lubbock Public Library’s “Celebrate Texas History Month.”

This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
