Fall Video Series

This fall, LRMA Library will host the Video Series, Egypt’s Golden Empire. A production of PBS, the series unfolds in 3 parts and follows the rise and fall of Egypt’s New Kingdom; its impact on art, science and politics on the ancient world. One part from the series will be offered each week on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the Museum Reading Room, September 4th through the 18th. Each video lasts approximately 60 minutes. The Library will replay each week’s video by request for those unable to attend the Tuesday 2:00 p.m. sessions.

In October, the Library will participate in a state-wide observance of National Archives Month. The theme for the month is “Faces of Mississippi”, and with that in mind, the LRMA Library will present a photograph exhibit entitled “Labor Pains: Hard Work Builds a Community”, a collection of rarely-seen images of the city’s workforce. The exhibit will run the entire month.
