Always something to see....

Formal displays and exhibits take place throughout the year and are located inside the Pennsylvania Room, around the Pennsylvania Room's hallway, and even in one of the outside window case near the library's main entrance. But even in between formal displays, visitors will be happy to know that there is always something to see in the library's Pa Room.
