Erie Canal Exhibits

Host a Small Exhibit at Your Library

The library councils are working on an exhibit to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the ground-breaking on the Erie Canal. It includes an online exhibit (featuring NY Heritage images) as well as a physical exhibit that will travel to different libraries. The physical exhibit will include 4 stand-up banners/posters and a freestanding kiosk holding an Android tablet (locked for security) allowing people to browse the online exhibit too. One exhibit is available for each library council’s region, each traveling throughout the region during the year. The schedule will rotate monthly, where the physical exhibit would change hands around the beginning of each month, moving to a different library.

Please contact the Network if you are interested in scheduling for your library: christi@nnyln.org or (315) 265-1119 ext 4.
