The Library of Congress’ traveling exhibition “Gateway to Knowledge” is in Gainesville today and tomorrow. “Gateway to Knowledge” traveling Docent Abigail Van Gelder says the displays are interactive and educational for visitors.

“We’ve used graphic reproductions in order to make these so it’s very close up and hands on. When you come in to take a look at the Gutenberg Bible, ours isn’t behind glass, ours in on a panel there that you can get up close to, look at and have fun with,” she says.

The exhibition is free and open to the public at the Millhopper Branch Library from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
