Ongoing Programing

Community Conversations

Community Conversations is an online virtual program that we host once a month on a Wednesday evening. We choose a different topic from Clark County’s history and see what our collections—and our local experts—can tell us about this topic.

History Table Talks

We regularly premiere interviews from our Oral History Collection as part of History Table Talks. These are casual conversations about the lived experiences of local Clark Countians.
