Virtual Tour: Turning Pages

Turning Pages: Celebrating 100 Years of the Nelson Public Library, was shown in Gallery B from September 12 to November 22, 2021. The show, guest curated by former NPL Librarian and author Anne DeGrace, explored the rich history of the library, including its rough mining town origins, the key players throughout it’s history, and a look into what the future may hold. 


To accompany the tour, we have developed two guided activities that are available to educators, and are suitable for ages 8 and up. For more information please email
