Valley Library Satellite Exhibit: History Mystery

Exhibit runs through Sunday, April 15, 2018

Mystery Object #5, JDCM EDU.0682

This interactive exhibit examines ideas about technology in relation to the Juneau Public Librariesí Big Read and Discover Tech projects. From mid-September 2017 through mid-April 2018, several objects from the Museumís Education Collection will be on display at the Valley Library. They are all pieces of technology that were once considered innovative solutions that improved peopleís quality of life or made a professionís work easier and more accurate. While operational, not all of these objects are still in everyday use, many having been replaced with more technologically-based modern alternatives.

The public is invited to use their imagination and powers of observation to envision what these objects are and to write their own museum labels, either imaginative or historic. Label templates may be picked up at the Valley Library front desk. Completed labels need to be turned in to the library before November 30th. People may fill out and turn in as many labels as they wish. City Museum staff will choose two labels for each object, best historical and most creative, and these will be posted in the display case from January to mid-April.
