Centennial "History of" Series

As part of our efforts to celebrate the centennial at the library, we will be hosting a yearlong history series focusing on the “history of” different partner organizations in Lincoln County. Held on the third Wednesday of each month from September 2019 through September 2020, these programs will provide an opportunity for library partners to share their history with our community.

Camp Gray OMSI

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry opened the Coastal Discovery Center at Camp Gray in 2016. During this program, learn about the history of the OMSI’s coastal outdoor education programs, what brought them to Newport, and what they hope to do next.

Anne Armstrong, who has been with OMSI Outdoor Science Education since 2008, moved to Newport in 2016 with the coastal education program. In her role as the Coastal Discovery Center Manager, she oversees the facility, staffing, curriculum, and area partnerships.
