The Bettendorf Public Library’s monthly event known as Community Connection is excited to highlight local history, for you and your family.

Today, December 19th at 1:30 PM, the Putnam Museum will make ancient history come to life when they host Community Connections: Prehistory of the Quad Cities. The event will look at the first people who lived in the Quad Cities area over 10,000 years ago, how area Native Americans lived and how their culture changed until they greeted the first Euro Americans to arrive.
Prehistory of the Quad Cities with the Putnam Museum will offer attendees hands-on learning based on Native American artifacts from the Putnam’s collection. Participants will discover how anthropologists use artifacts to tell the stories of daily life in ancient cultures. It's a fun way to learn and explore with experts in their field.
