The Bill of Rights and You

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
All Locations
2016 marks the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights, one of our nation’s early attempts to form “a more perfect union.” In honor of this milestone, the National Archives encourages everyone to engage in thoughtful debate and discussion of how our ancestors sought to create a more just society and how we do so today.

The Bill of Rights and You exhibit highlights the remarkably American story of how we have amended, or attempted to amend, the Constitution in order to form a nation that more closely mirrors our ideals. The exhibit presents key information that is easy to understand about the Bill of Rights and its impact, viewable at each of the Spokane County Library District’s locations.

The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the Yellow Wall-Paper

Saturday, March 18, 2017
Moran Prairie
The exhibition Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and “The Yellow Wall-Paper” explores the story behind Gilman’s indictment of the medical profession and the social conventions restricting women’s professional and creative opportunities. During a time when women were challenging traditional ideas about gender that excluded them from political and intellectual life, artist and writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who was discouraged from pursuing a career to preserve her health, rejected these ideas in a terrifying short story, titled “The Yellow Wall-Paper.”

This exhibition is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

You can read a copy of “The Yellow Wall-Paper” on OverDrive at bit.ly/yellow-wall-paper or download it at bit.ly/lit-prescription.
