The Mount Prospect Public Library, in collaboration with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, presents "Abraham Lincoln: Self-Made in America", a world-class traveling exhibit featuring reproduction artifacts from the ALPLM, Oct. 12-26. This free exhibit is a wonderful learning opportunity, and all are invited to tour it during the Library's regular hours.
The exhibition examines Lincoln's life from his poor beginnings to his ascension to the presidency and his assassination.
