The Kamloops Museum and Archives Presents: A Children's History of Kamloops

Kamloops, B.C. - As part of the 2 Rivers, 2 Peoples, 200 Years - Kamloops Bicentennial: 1812-2012, Kamloops students were invited to participate in a City of Kamloops and Kamloops Museum & Archives project called "A Children's History of Kamloops". This project would become a compilation of students' projects and artwork based on their research and perspectives of Kamloops history. The 94-page, coil-bound book has now been published and is filled with a variety of topics from blacksmiths and personal family trees, to fashion, food and utilities in 1912.

Staff, parents, families and the public are invited to attend the official book launch:
