Extreme History Project Lecture | The Best Gift: Montana’s Carnegie Libraries

MOR is pleased to host the Extreme History Project lecture series that encourages public understanding of the way our history has shaped our present. Speakers take a fresh look at interesting historical topics.

Kate Hampton of the Montana State Historic Preservation Office will speak to her hot-off-the-press book, The Best Gift: Montana’s Carnegie Libraries revealing the history of these iconic libraries throughout Montana. She will delve into Bozeman’s own Carnegie library, giving the history of this monumental structure that sits silently on the corner of Bozeman and Rouse streets.

MOR invites adults to learn more about our past and future through various speakers year-round. We are proud to partner with the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences, the Extreme History Project, and the Gallatin History Museum in lectures throughout the year at Museum of the Rockies. All lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees may not save seats for others.
