This is week 22, and as area high schools are preparing for graduation, we thought it would be appropriate to highlight our Yearbook collection. Yearbooks are a fantastic tool for anyone researching family history, or as time capsules for style, social trends, and local business history as seen through advertising. Parents and grandparents beware! That beehive hair-do and Jheri-curl might come back to haunt you.

Every object has a story, and stories build history. To celebrate 150 years of Kansas statehood we're featuring 52 objects (or collections of related objects)—something new each week throughout the year—from the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library's 130-year-old special, and permanent collections, that represent our collective state history and cultural diversity. Your library's commitment to collecting art and preserving local history makes it possible for users today and in the future to have immediate access to invaluable research material and cultural artifacts.
