History of the Book Exhibit from Dec 15, 2019 10:00 AM to Jan 13, 2020 08:00 PM
This "hands-on" exhibit is intended to bring to life the invention of writing, paper and books, telling the book's story to both children and adults. The display consists of historically accurate replicas of the book throughout history. The exhibit is the result of a creative collaboration between the Iowa Center for the Book and the University of Iowa Center for the Book. The display is located in the display case near the front lobby. Individuals and groups may request a time slot during library hours when library staff can assist with learning activities. The exhibit will be at the library until January 13, 2020.
