"Mapping Tompkins" Workshop

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 8, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Event Location: 
The History Center, 401 E. MLK, Jr./State Street

In recognition of Tompkins County's Bicentennial, Tompkins County Public Library and The History Center in Tompkins County will partner this spring for "Mapping Tompkins," a community celebration of what it means to live, learn, work and play in Tompkins County.

Inspired by the book "Mapping Manhattan: A Love (and Sometimes Hate) Story in Maps by 75 New Yorkers," "Mapping Tompkins," offers an opportunity for community members past and present to share-through writing and illustrating pre-printed, blank maps of Tompkins County - what makes Tompkins County a special part of their lives. Participants are encouraged to preview the Tompkins County Map and look at an example from the "Mapping Manhattan." Crayons, markers and magazines for collage-style creation will be available for participant use.
