"Mapping Tompkins" Workshop

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 15, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Event Location: 
Tompkins County Public Library, 101 E. Green 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.
