Program on Bill of Rights scheduled Feb. 1 at Bonner Springs Library

The Bonner Springs City Library, 201 N. Nettleton Ave., will hold a Bill of Rights program at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, in conjunction with the exhibit, “The Bill of Rights and You.”

The new pop-up exhibit from the National Archives opened at the Bonner Springs Library on Jan. 23 and runs through Feb. 15. It commemorates the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights.

The exhibit tells about an interesting period of American history, explaining the origins of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, shows how each amendment protects U.S. citizens and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments.

“The Bill of Rights and You” is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration, and travels through the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service. The exhibition is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation and the National Archives Foundation.

The exhibit is brought to the Bonner Springs Library in collaboration with the Kansas Humanities Council, and Federation of State Humanities Councils.
