Warner Library Announces Smithsonian Exhibit Coming in January

Starting January 3, a special exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution will be at the Warner Library in Clinton for five weeks for the public to view.


On the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, Business Manager of the Library, Samantha Rusk told Regional Radio the exhibit called "Voices and Votes: Democracy in America." It is a traveling exhibit and Clinton will be its fifth of six different stops.



According to Rusk, the exhibit showcases how democracy in America came to be and the process of voting and its importance.



Rusk says the caliber of exhibit coming to the library starting January 3 will be to the caliber of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution or a Chicago museum. She is very much looking forward to this being in Clinton for the community and surrounding communities.



The exhibit will also encompass youth activities at the library for the month of January. Children's Librarian Corey Campbell indicates they will offer a program that will engage the kids in the voting process so they can watch how democracy works.



The library will also be hosting several events that center around this exhibit. Rusk says there are four in-person events that kick off with an unveiling celebration on Thursday, January 6.



There is a lot more going on in conjunction with this exhibit. You can get more information by following the Warner Library on Facebook or by calling them at 217-935-5174 or visiting vwarner.org.
