50 Jr. High students from Olson Middle School visit the archives

ryan blog post.jpgOn January 11th Andersen Library was pleased to welcome 50 students from Olson Middle school, Bloomington, MN. These 6th and 7th graders who are preparing for History Day projects learned about primary sources and toured the facilities. One parent - and past researcher - sent us the following note:

"Thank you for the great presentation to the Olson Middle School students on January 11. My daughters Claire and Amelia loved it--they are already history fans, so I am very glad for them to have every opportunity to develop their interest in this subject."

We were glad to have them!
