News from Lindsey Wilson Public Library
COLUMBIA, KY - Visitors this month to the Lindsey Wilson College Katie Murrell Library can see and learn how the Civil War affected Kentucky. Through February 29, 2012, a display of six seven-foot panels about Kentucky's role in the Civil War are on display in the lobby area of the Murrell Library, 235 Holloway Drive. The traveling exhibit is on loan from the Kentucky Historical Society.
Each of the six panels of the "museum to go" exhibit focuses on a different theme:
One of the panels includes a picture of a saber used by Union Col. Frank Wolford, the Adair County resident who captured Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan.
This is the fourth "museum-to-go" that has been displayed in the Murrell Library.
"We try to get one every year that displays a different aspect of Kentucky history," said Lindsey Wilson Chief Librarian Phil Hanna. "These are helpful not only to college students, but to area grade school and high school students, whom we welcome to campus."
Hours of the Murrell Library: Monday - Thursday, 7:30am-11pmCT. Friday, 7:30am-5:30pmCT. Saturday, 1pm-5pmCT. Sunday 2pm-10pmCT.Note: hours of operation are Central time and will vary during summer and holidays. To contact the Murrell Library: email@example.com or 270-384-8102.
