The Library at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School will have a new display in October and will host a guest speaker.
As part of celebrating Kansas in the library series, the SCCC/ATS Library will have “Kansas and the Home Front” on display throughout October that tells the story of Kansas during World War II and following. More than 200,000 young men and women from Kansas enlisted in the armed forces. Kansans who remained at home also helped the war efforts. World War II brought about many changes in America, including the breaking down of resistance for women in the work place. The War ended the Great Depression by stimulating the economy, spurring technological advances in industry and agriculture, and mobilizing the entire country.
This exhibit was produced by Emporia State University with funding provided by the Kansas Humanities Council.
Hugoton resident Randal Greenwood, an independent movie director, will discuss the making of the movie “Lost Treasure Trail.” Some of the scenes were shot on the SCCC/ATS campus. This free program will be from at 12:10-12:50 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22. Refreshments will be served.
