Bellingham Public Library staff and resources are featured in a recent episode of the PBS television show “We’ll Meet Again.”

Preparing to film at the Central Library for an episode of “We’ll Meet Again,” featuring Bellingham Public Library staff and resources.

Season 2, Episode 3 of “We’ll Meet Again” shows the dramatic reunions of people who as children survived the 1964 great Alaskan earthquake.

“This is the wonderful story of childhood friends who are reunited after many decades and are able to reconnect and reminisce about surviving this traumatic event together,” said Rebecca Judd, director of the Bellingham Public Library.

Using public library databases, old yearbooks and other resources described in the show, Suzanne Carlson-Prandini, a public services librarian, was able to help connect the dots that led to the reunion.

“In addition to helping reunite these people, this episode really highlights the value of libraries and how we use our skills and the resources we have at our fingertips to find information that people need and care about,” Judd said.
