Traveling Exhibit at the Carmel Valley Branch Library

In April 2017, the Historical Society celebrated its 30th Anniversary by hosting a party at the History Center where over 100 residents helped celebrate the milestone event. Several large posters were displayed at the event that told the Society’s story from its inception in 1987 to the present day.
These same posters are now displayed on the walls of the Carmel Valley Branch Library during the month of July. Each month the Library invites different exhibitors to display on their walls for library visitors to view and learn about diverse subjects over the course of a year.
