Delve Through History with the Help of /r/AskHistorians!

It's at last 2021, a new year, and if you're feeling retrospective /r/AskHistorians may be the place for you. AskHistorians is a subreddit (basically a sub-forum on the site where moderator verified academic experts from a variety of fields answer questions about history. You can choose to either browse the vast archive of existing questions or create a reddit account to ask your own questions, all for free.

Flaired experts exist in every category of historical inquiry, from Tudor-Stuart Politics & Society, to Heian - Edo Japanese Arms & Armor, and beyond. These academics will answer questions in painstaking detail and cite sources in support of their statements, in case you were in doubt. 

But if you're more interested in plumbing the depths of human history by reading on your own, /r/AskHistorians still has you covered. Their booklist provides a catalogue of starting points for any historical journey, from a dive into Icelandic Sagas to an exploration of Zimbabwean independence. There's more history to look back on now than ever before, so why not enlist professional aid to guide your search?

Reading Room Update
Construction on the new reading room was completed just as the pandemic hit and closures began. Our grand-opening reception was scheduled for March 13th, the very day the library made the difficult decision to close the library building to the public. As a result, we may not have had the opportunity to property all of you. From all of us here at the library: THANK YOU. Your donations, both great and small all contributed to making this happen and we cannot wait to share this space with our community. 
Missing our ukulele program and your new found friends? Here's an option: join the Catskills Ukulele Group on Zoom for weekly jams every Saturday from 1:00 PM-2:30 PM. The session will be available to join 15 minutes before the event starts. Tip: bookmark the session link for easy access in the future!

For more information, please email Lynda and/or join the Catskills Ukulele Google Group.
