Underground Railroad / Libraries and the UGRR
« on: May 10, 2006, 02:56:26 pm »
We're currently looking for Public Libraries, especially those along the route corrdidor and those that have Underground Railroad collections to join an online message board designed for public and rural libraries. It is administered by Online Community Library Center (OCLC) and is supported by the Gates Foundation.  By joining the WebJunction community, Libraries can share UGRR resources and collections with eachother and traveling cyclists.  Adventure Cycling now denotes libraries in our service directory on our maps.  We've found touring cyclists utilize libraries for the internet and a nice place to relax (cool down or get warm/dry...)

We anticipate libraries along the route will become involved with the touring cyclist, possibly building community programs around educating and sharing knowledge with the cyclists.  Please invite your public library to join WebJunction. It's a free resource for any public library.  http://www.webjunction.org/do/Home

Thank you.

Underground Railroad / Hitchcock House

We are looking at eventually providing "Spurs" to the main corridor so that as many UGRR sites can be included as possible. We are still developing a proto-type and can't include every site/community in the country, but we are interested in providing the best combination of historic cycle touring possible.  Please send documentation about your community to gsullivan@adventurecycling.org  Thank you.

Underground Railroad / Idea for the route

Chuck,
Love your idea. I'm going to discuss it with CMH on Friday.  This would be a great way to involve agencies at a local level.

Keep the ideas coming!
