We hope you’ll join us for our “Through the Pages” costume ball on February 22, 2019! Tickets are now available for $10 at Skidompha’s front desk and online at www.supportskidompha.org.

This ball is a benefit to support the Lincoln County News digital archive project. Skidompha is assisting in this effort, and has raised $40,000 to begin the project in partnership with the Lincoln County News. The result of this project will be an online, searchable archive of local news — dating all the way back to 1870! This is the first time this record is available in this format to the public. It will be an invaluable resource for research, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with our favorite local paper to bring this record to our community.

And now, the details! “Through the Pages” will take place at Skidompha Library on Friday, February 22nd. As we have a penchant for theatrics, this event will be a costume ball. We encourage you to wear your formal dress from any decade the newspaper has been in print — anytime between 1870 through today! This event is not to be missed. There will be live music, dancing, light bites, silent auction, and beverages for sale! Please join us on February 22nd to support this important piece of local history.
