TCPL offers after-hours access to exhibits during Gallery Night Friday, October 3

If you missed our special 150 Years and Counting celebration last weekend, join us on Friday, October 3, when TCPL participates in Gallery Opening Night from 5 to 8 PM.
Entry to the Library after 5 PM is through the BorgWarner Community Room door behind the Bus Shelter on Green Street.

Four exhibits are on display: Lincoln, the Constitution and the Civil War, an ALA traveling exhibit which will be at the Library through the end of October; Tompkins County in a Time of War: On the Home Front and on the Battlefield, which features artifacts used by members of the local community during the time of the Civil War and now loaned from the collection of the History Center in Tompkins County; Mightier than the Sword: The impact of Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, the Library's featured book during Banned Books week; and Montage Histories: Tompkins County, New York, through Photographs 1864-2014 which illustrates the changes experienced by significant buildings, places and landscapes during the 150 years since the Library was founded in 1864.

View these exhibits after hours when quiet voices are not required and the Library acts as an Art Gallery and not as a Library.  Purchase a copy of the exhibit catalog for Montage Histories, available for $17.25 while stocks last.  When all copies are sold, additional copies can be obtained via "print on demand". Go to MagCloud and search for Montage Histories.  Individual copies cost $17.29 plus shipping.
