This year marks the 200th anniversary of the first settlers arriving to what is now the town of Leon. In recognition of this bicentennial, the Leon Historical Society and Tina Scherman will be running a fun educational program at the Prendergast Library.

“Pioneer’s Journey” is a free event at the library on Tuesday July 17 at 2 p.m. Children will learn about why pioneers came to New York, how they traveled, and more fun facts and stories about the history of Western New York. This program is interactive and aimed at children ages 8 and up.

For more information, please call (716) 484-7135 ext. 234, or stop by the Children’s Room at the library. The Prendergast Library is located at 509 Cherry Street in Jamestown. Visit prendergastlibrary.org for more information about programming and summer reading events.
