On the Art Wall -- in the library's main floor Miron Fireside Room
The library features an exhibit of Maps of the Western United States 1688-1857. The maps are part of a collection owned and curated by Tom Sutter — a Fox Valley history enthusiast. The collection illustrates how exploration made possible the expansion of the United States toward the Pacific Ocean. At 2:00pm on Sunday, October 21, we will have a special presentation regarding G.K. Warren and his great Maps of the Western United States prepared as part of the Pacific Railroad Survey in the 1850s. Following his presentation there will be a surprise guest speaker--a famous explorer of the western United States, and there will be many other maps and books on display on that Sunday.
