    Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times

    The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to host Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times, a national traveling exhibition organized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. This exhibition has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is a valuable addition to the Boca Raton Public Library’s 2016 initiative to further civic engagement.

    Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times encourages a deeper understanding of the nation’s 16th president’s life, accomplishments and legacy through Lincoln’s own words in speeches, letters and proclamations. Lincoln believed that America’s greatest strength lay in guaranteeing its citizens their natural rights and opportunities to succeed. Like Jefferson, Lincoln believed that “all men are created equal,” and he carried these democratic ideals to their logical conclusion further than any president had done before.

    “Visitors will be able to connect to Lincoln the man—not just Lincoln the icon—and be inspired by his personal ideals and actions, as well as his impact on American democracy,” notes Oyuki De Santiago Poletz, Program Services Librarian. “The BRPL is proud to bring this exceptional trove of American history to the community.”

    Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times will be available for public viewing through September 12 during the Downtown Library’s regular hours: Monday–Thursday, 9:00 am–9:00 pm, Friday–Saturday, 9:00 am–6:00 pm, and Sunday, 12:00 noon–6:00 pm.
