Click HERE to view program poster.

Thursday, June 27, 7:00 PM: Lakeside Lab archaeological field schools have investigated the archaeology of the Gillett Grove site (13CY2) since 1995 and have uncovered remarkable evidence that helps us understand the lifeways of the Oneota people who lived there in the last decades before direct contact with Europeans began on a regular basis. The Oneota—direct ancestors of today’s Ioway, Oto, and related tribes—were farmers and hunters who made the Little Sioux River valley and the Iowa Great Lakes area part of their home range in the latter 1500s and throughout the 1600s. Join John Doershuk, State Archaeologist of Iowa, in the Spencer Public Library Round room where he will discuss the history of research at 13CY2 along with the finds made by the Lakeside Lab archaeology students.

Important News About Wilbor

WILBOR Update: The WILBOR Team has happy news to share about very recent changes to this popular eBook / audiobook service. The audiobook loan period is now 14 days, matching the eBook loan period. Staff and patrons from many participating WILBOR libraries asked for audiobook checkout time to be longer: you asked, we listened, and OverDrive delivered! This change went into effect last Friday afternoon (6/21) Any audiobooks checked out since last Friday will be due in 14 days. However, this 14-day checkout change is not retroactive, so any audiobooks checked out prior to last Friday will still expire after 7 days.
