Discover the social media of the past

What did social media look like in the past? Learn more about how people stayed social in the past with Gossip, Gags & Guidance: Wood County’s Social Pages at the Wood County District Public Library on Friday at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room C.

Social media has obviously changed our world, but we sometimes forget that similar social interactions have been around for generations. Come and listen to local history librarian Marnie Pratt discuss how newspapers provided communities with a “social media” long before the internet was even an idea.
