The Enterprise Public Library has set up an exhibit revolving around Alabama’s and the city’s history in celebration of the state’s bicentennial and the centennial of the Boll Weevil monument.

The display includes facts about Alabama cities, a timeline of the history of Alabama and Enterprise, African American history within the state of Alabama, and facts about certain cities across Alabama, including Enterprise’s Boll Weevil Monument and the World’s Smallest St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Each member of the library staff took on a section of the display, according to EPL Youth Librarian Chrissy Crump.

“It’s very exciting to be a part of the bicentennial celebration because it is a big birthday,” Crump said. “We learn a lot by trying to find out these facts to put on display. I hope that they (patrons) learn a little bit more about their history and their town.”

The exhibit sits on the second floor while the first floor holds a photo opportunity for anyone to become the face of the boll weevil being held by the Lady in White.
