I & M Canal Program
More than 150 years ago, a waterway construction project took place in Illinois that enhanced transportation and shipping not only in the state of Illinois, but also for the East coast and the Gulf of Mexico.
In “Today and Yesterday,” local historians Brian Nolan and Patrick Rooney will present their original DVD of a history of the Illinois & Michigan canal and take questions on the wonders of this picturesque and unique national treasure.
The program is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 4.
The DVD will be on sale after the program.
This program is free and open to the public. Register today to reserve your seat by calling (815) 942-6880 or stop in to the library.
