"Third Thursday" Lecture Series in 2014
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.
