ERIE, PA – History is everywhere! From Monday, June 5, to Sunday, June 11, join the Erie County Public Library and dozens of local partners in celebrating our County’s amazing past with our second annual HistERIE Week. This year’s focus is on discovering the fascinating historic markers that dot our region, both state and local. The weeklong series will have historic location tours, outdoor marker talks, classes and workshops, and even a lecture on a moving EMTA trolley! In addition, stop by any ECPL location to pick up an information packet containing maps, activities, and a passport to document your visits (while supplies last).

Event organizer and librarian Jenny Martin says, “It is so fun to explore history in the library’s Heritage Room but also out there in the world! I hope everyone enjoys this week of discovery around Erie County.”

“We’re so thankful to all the local museums, historical societies, history interest groups, and library staff that are helping to make this possible,” says Andrew Miller, Adult Services Manager. “Last year’s HistERIE week was a huge success, and we hope people will notice more of the history that’s all around them after this year’s event.”
