UPCOMING INITIATIVES: 

Mobile History Week

 January  8 - 14, 2024

Mobile in 100 Words 

March - May 2023

Community Collection 

This initiative is intended as on-going process of collecting photos and memories from personal and family collections to be digitized, organized thematically and available to the public. Ultimately the collection should present a more balanced and document-based record, a set of data describing the daily life of Mobilians in the 20th and 21st Centuries which the community itself participates in creating. Programs would invite broad-based participation and opportunities for public dialogue from every age group and sector of society.
