Starting Thursday, April 3, the library will host this exhibit showcasing Anne Frank's writings, as well as the books she read while she was in hiding during the Holocaust. Truly a once in a lifetime chance, come out and explore this unique exhibit and be among the first in the United States to do so!
"Most people don't realize that in addition to her diary, she wrote many short stories and a sentence book," says Emily Arnold, program coordinator for the library.
The exhibit runs from April 3 until May 17 and is free to the public. Visitors and residents alike are encouraged to come out and tour this amazing exhibit! I'm sure you'll walk away inspired!
"For such a young girl, her ability to remain positive and share her thoughts and dreams in her journal is quite remarkable. I am sure at the time, she did not realize that years later, millions would read her thoughts, her words, her stories. It is such an honor to be able to showcase an exhibit about an extraordinary girl under extraordinary circumstances," Emily also says.
We can't wait to check this out! We're also excited for the library and applaud Ms. Arnold on working to bring such unique exhibits to the area. Stay tuned for special events centered around the exhibit!
