Apr 18, 2016

The Placentia Library District and the Placentia Historical Committee are pleased to present a yearlong lecture series on the history of our great city - Placentia. Come and explore Placentia’s rich, diverse and sometimes wacky history through these fun and interactive local history talks. The programs are open to all ages, attend one or all sessions. No registration required.
