Two Centuries of Photography at Warr Acres Library

If the camera doesn’t lie, 200 years of truth is coming to the Warr Acres Library. 

From the earliest days of photography, people have been taking pictures of the land and people that make up present day Oklahoma.  John Lovett, Assistant Curator and Librarian for the Western History Collections at the University of Oklahoma will present a special program at the Warr Acres Library, 5901 NW 63rd, on Saturday, September 29, from 2:00 to 3:00pm.

“John Lovett’s slide show presentation is suitable for all ages,” said Barbara Beasley, Manager of Warr Acres Library Operations, “and we hope children as well as adults will visit the library on Sept. 29 for this fascinating glimpse in our state’s history as recorded on film.”
