Adirondack Experience Offers New Internship Focusing On Historic Guidebooks.
The Adirondack Experience (ADKX) is pleased to announce receipt of a grant from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership (CVNHP) to support a fall internship in its library.
The intern will describe 300 historical Adirondack region guidebooks in the library’s collection. Spanning a century, from the 1870s to the 1970s, the guidebooks capture the burgeoning (and eventually dominant) tourism industry that flourished alongside Lake Champlain and into the Adirondack Mountains. The guidebooks are promotional materials published by rail and steamboat companies, hotel owners and others to entice visitors north from urban centers into the beauty and relative tranquility of New York’s North Country.
The internship offers a unique opportunity for a student to learn in an incomparable setting and to gain hands-on experience working with and increasing access to historical special collections. The intern will work on-site at the ADKX Library in Blue Mountain Lake, NY for 12 weeks in the fall of 2023.
Museum and library school students and recent graduates are encouraged to apply HERE. The deadline for applications is August 4, 2023, and the internship will begin in September 2023.

LGBTQ+ History is New York State (and American) History
Conversations with the Past
Wednesday, June 14, 2023, 7 pm on Zoom
Speaker: Dr. Megan Springate, PhD
The reason that we celebrate Pride in June is because of the Stonewall Uprising that took place in NYC in June of 1969. A lot of LGBTQ+ history has taken place in New York City.
This presentation will instead look at the LGBTQ+ history of other places across the State, including in Lake George and Albany. We’ll also look at how they connect to American history more broadly. There will be time for Q&A!

Artist Salon with Mollie Ward
Thursday, June 15, 2023 6:30 – 8:30 pm
An artful conversation held monthly where artists, writers, and arts professionals come together to bond, network and get out of their heads for a little while. It is a conversation; a support group; always a networking extravaganza; an experimental lab for new ideas; a place to learn and grow by leaps and bounds as an artist and a professional.
This evening’s highlight will include a talk by Mollie Ward, followed by conversation and critique of current works in progress by our artist and pro-artist members.
