Martin Luther King Jr Day

Visit the library and check out one of our books from the Martin Luther King Jr Day display.

The Bill of Rights and You Exhibit on view through February 28, 2017.

The Bill of Rights and You

The Marion Campus Library is currently displaying a new pop-up exhibition from the National ArchivesThe Bill of Rights and You, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document. The Bill of Rights and You spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution (collectively known as the Bill of Rights), illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments. The Bill of Rights and You invites visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that mark this historic document’s evolution.  This exhibit runs now through February 28, 2017.  

The Bill of Rights and You co-curator Jennifer Johnson states:
"The Bill of Rights represents the Founder's vision that it would be the people, through votes, that could change the Constitution with enough consensus. And when the people desired a Bill of Rights, our first ten amendments were added to our governing charter." 

The Marion Campus Library also has complimentary books on display highlighting the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. These materials may be checked out for a 2 week period.  The Marion Campus Library is open Monday through Thursday 8am to 8pm, Friday 8am to 5pm, and is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. The library will also be closed on Monday January 16th, 2017. Free pocket Constitutions are available while supplies last.

The Bill of Rights and You is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration, and traveled by the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service (NATES). This exhibition was developed in collaboration with the National Archives’ National Outreach Initiative to commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the Bill of Rights. The exhibition is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation.
