Gibbs Library, 40 Old Union Road, presents an exhibit of a selection of 18th- and 19th-century lithographs depicting events of the Revolutionary and Civil wars, from the collection of Lennie Weiner, Washington resident, Thursday, May 4, through July 3.

The exhibit’s subjects include two historical figures, George Washington and Israel Putnam, both of whom had a significant influence on the history of the Knox County town. At one time, the town of Washington was called Putnam in honor of the Revolutionary War hero. In 1825, the name of the town was changed to honor Washington.

The exhibit also includes books on the history of American printmaking, Currier and Ives and the Kellogg brothers of Connecticut. It may be seen during library hours: Mondays from 4 to 7 p.m.; Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon and 4 to 7 p.m.; Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 845-2663.
