MOHAI is inviting the community to explore the memories, memorabilia and myths of Seattle’s 1962 World’s Fair during a series of 50th anniversary workshops, running from Jan. 14 through Sept. 29.

The events are co-hosted by the Seattle Public Library, King County Library System and the Seattle Center Foundation.

The workshops will teach the history of the fair and the research skills needed to discover and document the 21st century. Follow-up seminars once a month will help participants develop their own research projects.
