Telling Local History
Using the Mercer Museum Library
with Author Scott Bomboy

Virtual Program – Zoom

Thursday, May 6, 2021
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (EST)

$10 Virtual Connection/$5 BCHS Member Virtual Connection


Local author and historian Scott Bomboy recently published a book and a website that mined the Mercer Museum Library’s resources to tell old stories in new ways. The library’s unique collections about Bucks County played a critical role in “An American Hometown,” the first early comprehensive
history of Perkasie Borough.

Another of Bomboy’s efforts was the 2019 web project with the Bucks County Historical Society,, the first detailed history of Bucks County’s covered bridges. Both projects combine the library’s archives with external sources to fill in many “historical gaps.” If you are a local historian or researcher, join us for this Zoom presentation and see how you might use the resources at the
Mercer Museum Library in your personal research.

Registration for this program is required. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
