Shelly McElroy has been named the Calgary Public Library's 2022 Historian in Residence. She has a background in education, agriculture, counselling, and museums and is the curator of Pioneer Acres Museum in Irricana, Alberta. Her work considers how agriculture shaped life in Calgary and area in the early twentieth century — and how it still does. Shelly will be providing talks and tours to help Library members understand the work involved in running a museum: making phone calls, having 35 browser tabs open on a computer, figuring out what kinds of ant traps work best, but also considering the changing role of museums and reflecting on their significance as we move into an increasingly digital future.
