The Daughters of the American Revolution’s local Fort Payne chapter partnered with the Naperville Public Library to bring this display to life, highlighting the Constitution and the framing fathers who drafted it.
“I think its very important now in our election year that we understand the work that went into the Constitution, the years of planning and execution and the danger involved in these men coming together,” said Librarian for the DAR’s Fort Payne chapter, Bettye Wehrli.
Previously on display at the Nichols and 95th Street libraries, the exhibit features parts of the Preamble and facts about how the Constitution came to be.
“For which we should all really be overjoyed and respectful and understand what the constitution’s all about and this is our attempt to make it relevant in today’s world,” said Wehrli.
Designed by Gail Rattray with the 95th Street Library, the display will be up at the Naper Boulevard Library through the end of September.
Constitution week is September 17 through the 23.
