The Grand Canyon, copper, and Arizona's history will be celebrated Saturday as the Southeast Regional Library hosts a "living museum" event 1 to 4 p.m.

This interactive experience will include original artifacts, period replicas, artisans, performers and historians. With presentations every half-hour, you can learn dances, talk with costumed historians and learn about Arizona’s rich history and diverse cultures.

Couple of interesting facts about Arizona, for example: more copper is mined in Arizona than all the other states combined, and the Morenci Mine is the largest copper producer in all of North America. The westernmost battle of the Civil War was fought at Picacho Pass on April 15, 1862 near Picacho Peak in Pinal County.

Come spend a few minutes or a few hours with us! You are sure to learn something new and have some fun!

For more information, call at (602) 652-3000. The library is located at Southeast is located at 775 N. Greenfield Road, Gilbert.
