KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Public Library has a traveling exhibit display for the public to view and learn. The Amazing Iowa Women exhibit features 28 banners of amazing women with Iowa connections and their contributions to the state and nation. Each portrait is created by a woman artist from Iowa.
Patrons can scan a QR code with a smartphone and learn more about each person. The Friends of Knoxville Public Library have generously agreed to purchase 50 copies of the book by Professor Katy Swalwell, which will be handed out to the public.
There are also activity sheets that will add fun and learning to the exhibit, which will stay through March to coincide with Women’s History Month and Dixie Gebhardt’s 100th anniversary of the Iowa state flag.
