The "Third Thursday" lecture series, featuring talks about Nevada history on the third Thursday of the month, will resume in 2014. A number of lecturers have been contacted and scheduling each of them to fit our schedule and ensure we have a presentation space is in progress. Traditionally we held our lectures at the auditorium of the Carson City Library, but that space is being repurposed by the Library. However, the Library has been able to let us use The BRIC (Business Resource Innovation Center) at 108 E. Proctor St. (just north of City Hall) for several lectures. If you wish to be notified of these events by e-mail as they are scheduled, please send your name and e-mail address to [email protected]
