Trekking Through History Traveling Backpacks

We have suspended our Trekking Through History Backpacks and Trunks program for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year and are no longer taking reservations for these materials. We hope to resume this program next school year. If you have questions, please contact Sara Kunau at sara.kunau@archives.alabama.gov or (334) 353-4712.
