This webinar will be of interest to California Public Libraries only.

This webinar will discuss War Comes Home, a beautiful and powerful exhibit designed to generate community dialog about the impact of returning home from war among Veterans, family, friends, and all visitors to your library. The exhibition is transportable, easy to assemble, easy to ship and includes a flexible presentation format. It features a cell audio tour in English and Spanish translation of each panel in order to increase the accessibility to the exhibition content. In addition to the exhibition, host venues receive an exhibition manual with installation instructions, publicity materials, gallery materials, and shipping coordination assistance.

Through private correspondence from almost every major conflict in U.S. history - from the Civil War era through the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the War Comes Home exhibition offers an intimate perspective on how war can shape a life, a family, a community. In addition to programming ideas to help promote and support this special exhibit, we will also cover logistics, reporting, and exhibition details for host sites.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will know:

  • How to become a host site for War Comes Home
  • Learn from host sites successful programming ideas
  • Understand host expectations and exhibit logistics

This webinar will be of interest to: Veterans Connect @ the Library sites and libraries who participated in the Cal Humanities War Comes Home Initiative.
