"Bright Ideas" Exhibit Now Open

What do these inventions have in common:

traffic light
ice cream scoop
fountain pen
lawn mower
seed planter
baby carriage
water closet, aka toilet

Give up? Okay, they are indispensable inventions that were created by African Americans. Come by the library and view an exhibit about the inventors of these everyday objects that we can't live without. Read a brief biography of the African Americans whose ingenuity made ideas into reality and view replicas and drawings of the inventions themselves.

Check back this Thursday, Feb. 14 at 10:30 to learn if Dr. Catanzaro will be able to deliver an opening address at the north end of the library where the exhibit is located. The inventions will be on display through the month of February.
