looks to host Smithsonian exhibit
Prairie Community Library has been invited to apply for a chance to host a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition called “THE WAY WE WORKED.”
It explores the tools and technologies that help shape our workforce. There are many people around here who would have antique tools to display also. We also have the museum of old machinery at the Fairgrounds and St. Gertude’s Museum in this area.
We are seeking letters of support stating why this exhibit should come to our area. There will only be 6 places in Idaho with less than 50,000 residents where it will be displayed. We have just finished renovating the Cottonwood Community Hall with a large grant that the Horizons group helped initiate. We now have handicap accessibility and a very nice facility to house such an exhibit. We are centrally located and easily accessible to the surrounding area.
Our deadline for this application is November 1, 2010. We are asking for city council members, chamber of commerce members or other groups in the communities to write letters of support for this project. If you would like more information or to help by writing a letter, please contact:
