Lake County Pop-Up Museum

Thursday, November 2, 6–8 pm 

While the Museum is closed in preparation for its move to Libertyville, the Lake County Pop-Up Museum will be appearing around the county at a variety of venues. On November 2, bring your high school memorabilia to the Cook Memorial Library for a unique Pop-Up Museum inspired by the Centennial celebration of Libertyville High School.  A Pop-Up Museum is a chance for YOU to create a temporary exhibit by bringing in objects and sharing stories. Think of it as a community show and tell. To participate in our Pop-Up Museum bring in objects that remind you of your time in high school such as prom dresses, yearbooks, letterman jacket, or even pop culture items. Learn more »
