National History Day

Last Friday the LaGrange College History Department and Lewis Library hosted 56 middle and high school homeschooled students and their parents from the Atlanta area for a History Day research workshop.   Many of them were here to narrow down their topics and use our library's resources to locate primary sources and in depth information. They were also able to take advantage of our librarians’ knowledge and our printing/scanning capabilities to help them take home research sources for their projects.   We had several remarks from the students and their parents that their time at the library was very helpful in their research. Overall, it was a very successful National History Day; we even have a second group of homeschooled students from Troup County with us today to also work on History Day research.
