Michigan Railroads: A History on Zoom (Registration Required)
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

In 1836, Michigan’s first railroad began operation between Toledo and Adrian. The first trains were pulled by horses. From that humble start, a network covering both of Michigan’s peninsulas grew and prospered. From the mid-1800s to today, mainline railroads have served the state’s industries, and have carried passengers both intrastate and on long-distance journeys. Branch lines and small railroads have served rural areas. While Michigan’s rail network has shrunk in recent decades, the transportation benefit of today’s system continues to be enormous. Five of North America’s eight major railroads operate in Michigan. In this virtual presentation, historian Bill McKnight will discuss railroads of all eras, illustrating them with maps and photos. He will also tell us about Michigan’s logging railroads and car ferries.

This special event will also be streamed on Facebook Live, which can be viewed from the library’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Tecumseh-District-Library-192148050127/.

History of Michigan Opera Houses on Zoom (Registration Required)
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The lecture, Once upon a Time at the Opera House, with author James Berton Harris will address the importance of opera houses to the cultural and community life in nonmetropolitan areas of the country during the Golden Age of Opera Houses (1865-1915). The primary focus will be on three of the over one hundred facilities that Michigan hosted during that period: the Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater, the Calumet Theatre, and the Ramsdell Theatre in Manistee. As both the civic and arts center for the community, they were a venue for community meetings, political rallies, concerts, lectures, and theatrical entertainment. Whereas almost every town in the state once had a facility referred to as an opera house, few remain and, of those that do, few are open for business. However, the opera houses in Coldwater, Calumet, and Manistee are still in operation and are still serving their communities as they have for over a hundred years.

J. B. (James Berton) Harris is the author of a 2019 Michigan History Award winning book, Once upon a Time at the Opera House: Drama at Three Historic Michigan Theatres. Presently, he is eagerly awaiting the publication of his most recent literary endeavor, Six Degrees of Betty Grable: A Musical Soap Opera with no Music and just a little Soap.

Adventurers in Knitting with Glass on Zoom (Registration Required)
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Instructor Carol Milne is the lone pioneer in the field of knitted glass. In 2006, she combined her passion for knitting with her love for cast glass sculpture and developed a process for creating glasswork that simulates fiber. In this class, you will discover the world of knitted glass as Carol leads us through the process of lost-wax casting in glass, and along a journey from small-scale, intimate works to larger-scale multi-piece projects.

This special event will also be streamed on Facebook Live, which can be viewed from the library’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Tecumseh-District-Library-192148050127/.
