Basics of the Erie Canal with the Erie Canal Museum

April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for this wonderful program on the “Basics of the Erie Canal”.  Derrick Pratt, (Director of Education for the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse) will give a presentation on why and how the canal was built. What happened once it was built and where is it now?  He will also have installed an exhibit at the library on “Barge and in Charge: Erie Canal Boats.”  This details different types of  boats found on the canal and how they were powered from the 19th century to now. This exhibit will be up until May, so stop in during library to enjoy it before it goes back to Syracuse!
