We're looking for help from those of the “millennial generation”!
Join us for a brainstorming meeting at the Carnegie Center, 10:00 am on Sat, November 29th. We want to know how you might consider becoming involved in the work of the Historical Society as we prepare to enter into Phase 2 of the renovation of the old Carnegie Library Building (now called the Carnegie Center). This building has meeting room space, exhibit space and a reference room. We anticipate it being a center that will welcome Lorainites for years to come. We NEED your input! Please consider attending and bringing your friends! #ShareThis

Bob Berkman’s pianola programs are providing some of the most intriguing and original performances now before the concert public. In 1975 Bob was hired by QRS in Buffalo, the world’s last piano roll manufacturer, where he produced innumerable re-issues of historic roll recordings for over thirty years. The Lorain Historical Society has a wide variety of piano rolls produced by QRS in its collection.

Bob’s particular interest in the neglected area of ethnic rolls prompted him to establish the largest institutionally held collection of such rolls at UCLA.
