The Juan Bautista De Anza Expedition Exhibit runs at the Luck Memorial Library through Sept. 17.
The exhibit went up earlier this month at the San Juan Bautista library on Second Street. Residents can visit the exhibit during regular library hours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12-7; Tuesday and Thursday from 11-6; and Saturday from 10-4.
This traveling exhibit was created by the National Park Service and features seven bilingual interpretive panels presenting the story of the 1776 expedition through San Juan Bautista and the challenges the members faced. It makes connections to timeless themes such as emigration, opportunity, diversity, hope, and faith.
