Medina library hosts traveling President Lincoln exhibition

March 8, 2012 by  

“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” opened Friday, March 2 at the Medina County District Library. The traveling exhibition will run at the downtown branch through April 13.

The exhibition focuses upon Abraham Lincoln and examines how the famous president called upon the Constitution of the United States to address three different crises during the Civil War. These events encompass the southern states’ secession, civil liberties during wartime and slavery. The exhibition includes reproductions of famous documents such as the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln’s inaugural speech for his first term as President of the United States, and the Thirteenth Amendment.

Special displays and presentations within the community, such as the traveling exhibition on President Lincoln, are often announced with special flyer printing, posters and other advertising methods in an attempt to make local citizens and others outside of the community aware of the event. Medina print companies may be called upon to provide a variety of print services when events such as the traveling exhibit come to the area.

The downtown branch of the Medina County District Library is located at 210 S. Broadway Street. The traveling exhibit can be seen Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 8:30 pm, on Fridays from 9 am to 6 pm, Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and 1-5 pm on Sundays. Other special exhibits will also be displayed throughout the month of March, including photographs and daguerreotypes from the Civil War era until March 15, and Civil War artifacts from March 16 to 30.
