Library hosts Reaching for the Stars

ALPENA ­– The Alpena County Library will host Reaching for the Stars: Michigan’s Capitol Building at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, in-person and via Zoom.

When most of us think of a capitol building, we think of government. The capitol is the place where laws are made and where citizens and elected officials come together to chart the future course of the state.

This is important work. Thus, when Michigan built its present Capitol in the 1870s, the men and women of our state did more than just build a building. They created an architectural and artistic masterpiece designed to inspire the people working in it to strive for a better future, as symbolized by the shining stars in the Capitol’s dome.

Be inspired by Capitol’s beautiful art and architecture, and learn more about its origins, creators, and ongoing preservation — with this program by Michigan State Capitol Historian and Curator Valerie Marvin.

Attendees can join this program via Zoom. Register in advance for this meeting: https://bit.ly/3r22Fxj.
