Sponsored by the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition, and funded in part by a grant from the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, the Todd Library proudly displays this historic panel depicting the famous debates. Adjacent to the 20-foot panel display are associated library materials available for check-out as well as an array of corresponding Lincoln memorabilia. This noteworthy depiction of the historic debates will be on display through March 9, 2009. Come visit the Todd Library for a step back in time.
