The Free Library's Special Collections Division will present Our Five Senses, the first family friendly, fully-interactive exhibition at the Free Library. The exhibition connects the science of the senses with the mind and the literary experience. Unique materials in the exhibition cross three centuries of human discovery.
The exhibition will run from May 13 - November 2, 2019, Monday - Saturday 9:00 a.m - 5:00 p.m. Visitors will learn about their identity, perceptions, and brain development by following five anthropomorphic characters (Touch, Taste, Sight, Hearing, and Smell) across multiple sensory stations. These hands-on sensory stations create intergenerational conversations around literacy, science, and fun!
Visitors are encouraged to sign up for free curator-led tours during the exhibition.
