John Adams Unbound: A Traveling Exhibition to Libraries

Cowles Library at Drake University is interested in planning a variety of programming opportunities associated with the John Adams Unbound traveling exhibit. In order to capture wide audiences, it is our intent to appeal to broad range of ages and interests. For this reason we are collaborating with the Des Moines Community Schools, the Des Moines Public Library, Humanities Iowa, Drake's own Ray Society and the Drake University Legal Clinic to provide multiple programming options, ranging from panel presentations to lectures to book club discussions to tours. Within the library facility, we have a large Reading Room (2800 square feet) that can accommodate group presentations and events. Three years ago, the Library was successful in hosting a large traveling exhibit sponsored by the National Holocaust Museum.
