Visiting the NYS Library
The exhibit Forever Free: Abraham Lincoln's Journey to Emancipation will be on display at the New York State Library between September 3, 2010 and October 14, 2010.
Location: The NYS Library is located on the seventh and eleventh floors of the Cultural Education Center, the same building that houses the New York State Museum.
Hours: The Library is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (except State holidays, which are noted on the Schedule of Events).
The Forever Free exhibit will be displayed on the seventh floor of the Library and can be viewed any time the Library is open. The exhibit is free and open to the general public.
Some events have also been scheduled for weekends or evenings and will take place in the New York State Museum (either the Huxley Theater, on the first floor, or the Clark Auditorium, on the concourse level).
"Forever Free: Abraham Lincoln's Journey to Emancipation" has been organized by the Huntington Library and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, in cooperation with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. This exhibition was made possible by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
