Historical Lecture Series presented by the Kennedale Historical Society
Thursday, September 21, 2023
Join us for a Historical Lecture Series at the Kennedale Public Library. Each month will feature a local speaker who will share interesting facts about Kennedale and how it came to be. Light refreshments will be served. Check the calendar online for topic and location.
The Historical Society kicks off this year's Lecture Series with a walk through the Kennedale Public Library with the first paid librarian, Gwen Bevill. Did you know the library was in an old police station and the library staff worked out of jail cells? Come hear how the Public Library came to be in Kennedale.
You can also help gather old newspapers for inclusion in our digitization project. Do you have old newspapers you could donate? Bring them to the Library! Check www.kennedalelibrary.org for the link to see the editions we are missing. You can help get Kennedale onto the UNT Portal to Texas!
