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 about. Six of these object and writing selections will be on display at the Valley Library starting mid-November 2016. The featured writers are Alida Bus, Larry Blatnik, Wayne Carnes, Rhonda Gardinier, Keith Goering, and Ernestine Hayes. The exhibit will be on view through July 2017. Visit the Valley Library to see the array of interesting items in the City Museumís collection and read the stories and poems of your fellow Juneauites.
