Live! From the Library

Live! From the Library presents the National Park Service Centennial. The NPS is celebrating its 100th birthday on August 25. To mark the occasion, National Park Service Superintendent Tom Leatherman will present an overview of the National Park system, including California’s National Parks and Historical Sites, 7-8:30pm, at the Walnut Creek Library. He will also share tips for planning visits and highlights from centennial celebrations across the country. 

Leatherman is the superintendent at four National Park Service historic sites in the East Bay: Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site, John Muir National Historic Site, Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial, and Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park. He started his NPS career in 1989 as an intern at Pinnacles National Monument and went on to work in several parks, monuments, and historic sites before ending up back in the Bay Area. He was selected as the superintendent of these sites in January of 2011. Registration is open for this free event in the Oak View Room at the Walnut Creek Library, 1644 N. Broadway Ave. 925-935-5395.
