Replicas of some of the most significant documents in American history will roll into the Lake County Public Library’s parking lot, 1919 W. 81st Avenue in Merrillville, Indiana on December 10th and 11th from 10am to 6pm.
The Library of Congress’ Gateway to Knowledge, an 18-wheel semitrailer that expands to three times its traveling size and is free to the public.
The exhibition will also outline the history of the Library, including Thomas Jefferson’s role in allowing its re-establishment following the burning of the U.S. Capitol in 1814 by providing his personal book collection to the nation. Jefferson’s organization of his books by “Memory, Reason and Imagination” will inform the organization of the exhibition.
