Do you know your hometown like the back of your hand?

Well a lady from 1851 had the opportunity to have the world in the palm of her hand, or at the very least London.

Created for an international exposition held there in London,  this piece of ephemera was used not only as an advertisement of where to go to see exhibits to the tourist that came from all over but as a permanent map for use at a later time.

The Third Thursday of the month is upon us!

This month we are following a library wide theme and are featuring biblical maps.

After stopping by the 8th floor to view the exhibit stop on by the Audubon Room to view the current exhibit "Celebrating 400 Years of the King James Bible: Its Origins in Manuscript and Print".

Hope to see you there!
