Life in Laurel








Life in Laurel is a monthly round table discussion of Laurel history co-sponsored by the Laurel Public Library and the Laurel Historical Society. Each discussion begins with a topic related to Laurel and the conversation goes from there. Enjoy learning something new, chatting about local history, and asking questions over light refreshments.

Life in Laurel is held monthly from September through May at Laurel Public Library from 10:30 AM to 12:00 noon.   Topics for November through May will be posted soon.
