The City Museum displayed two exhibits called Ordinary Things/Extraordinary Tales. In these exhibits, members of the community were invited into Museum storage to pick an object to write a response to or story about. These object and writing selections at the Douglas Library feature artifacts selected by and written about by Douglas residents, Emily Wall, Ross Soboleff and Genevieve Gagne-Hawes.
