Due to construction on campus, it is best to approach the Main Library from the south or the east.  A metered parking lot is located to the west of the Main Library.  The street is blocked to the traffic at 6th and Gregory, but you can do around the “closed to thru traffic” sign and then turn right into the parking lot.  There is street parking in the area and you may wish to park on the east side of the Quad and walk over.

BINDING OUR STATE TOGETHER: 200 YEARS OF CANALS, RAILROADS, POSTAL SERVICE, INTERURBAN  (Membership Meetings)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Archives at Urbana Free Library (2d floor)
Norm Moline is our first Illinois Humantieis Speakers Bureau presenter and a professoer emeritus of geography at Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.  Illinois has changed from a sparsely settled and minimally connected area to a state with  extensive and still evolving transportaiton links. Transportaiton and postal service developments have been key factors in shaping the state and the life of our Illinois ancestors. Though the core changes are obvious and perhaps taken for granted, the details and interesting stories along that historical path are fascinating.
