We’re excited to announce that the Mobile Museum of Tolerance (MMOT) will be visiting our library this month! Come aboard this extraordinary bus-sized traveling exhibit to hear empowering stories that combat anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, hate and intolerance and promote human dignity. MMOT utilizes innovative technology and interactive lessons to bring its message of tolerance directly to Illinois communities.
Monday, March 14–Thursday, March 17
Drop in. No registration required.
Be sure to also visit the Bookmobile in our parking lot on Tuesday, March 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. to check out or return materials or to sign up for a library card!
Three Programs for All Ages:
- Civil Rights
- The Anne Frank Story
- The Power of Ordinary People
The MMOT is affiliated with the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum. Wiesenthal was a prisoner in five Nazi concentration camps during World War II. He dedicated his life after the war to search for and legally prosecute Nazi criminals, and to promote Holocaust memory and education. The MMOT hopes to inspire thousands of Illinoisans to stand up to hate and strive toward positive social change.
