Jeep: It’s a Toledo Thing
Any Toledoan can tell you that Toledo and Jeep are inextricably bound. From the moment the vehicle’s design was conceived, Toledoans have been continuously building Jeeps and crafting the unmistakable brand that it is today. In this exhibit, discover the origins of Jeep and learn more about Toledo’s role in creating and sustaining this iconic automobile.

The Willard Suitcases
Exhibit Date: June 8 – July 13 | Main Library Gallery
For more than 125 years, the staff of Willard Psychiatric Center in Ovid, previously known as the Willard Asylum for the Insane, cared for people with long-term mental illness. When it closed in 1995, workers discovered hundreds of suitcases belonging to former patients that appeared untouched since their arrival at the center. Dating as far back as 1869, each suitcase was a time capsule to be discovered and explored.
