Stewart Library Hosts Open House Artifact Showcase

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University Archives and Stewart Library Special Collections will host an open house to showcase artifacts from the early days of Weber State and Ogden, Nov. 13 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Stewart Library Hetzel-Hoellein Room. The event is free and open to the public.

Visitors will be able to examine scrapbooks, Civil War memorabilia, historical textiles, uniforms and other artifacts. Items from the library’s rare book collection, including a first edition Book of Mormon, will also be on display.

“This is an opportunity for guests to explore the many unique items in our collections that we don’t often get to share with the public,” said Kandice Harris, University Archives coordinator.

The WSU Archives and Stewart Library Special Collections work together to document the history of Weber State and the surrounding communities. Through their work, oral histories, photographs and other historical records are collected and preserved.

“We hope that visitors will come explore our collections and learn a little more about the work we do at the library,” Harris said. “Whether you’re a current Weber State student, an alumnus or a community member, we hope everyone realizes the importance of their story. It’s all part of our community’s rich history.”
