Art and Architecture in Illinois Libraries

One of the highlights of my attendance at the Annual Meeting of the American Library Association this past weekend was an opportunity to see the exhibit "Art and Architecture in Illinois Libraries". The exhibit was put together by Allen Lanham and his staff at the Eastern Illinois University Library with funding from a Library Services and Technology Act Grant awarded by the Illinois State Library. The exhibit is a traveling exhibit and is being displayed by libraries across Illinois. It's a great idea which has been well executed and is worthy of replication in other states. I would certainly like to see something similar in Wisconsin. I especially liked the panel on Carnegie libraries in Illinois.
