  • | 10:00am - 4:00pm | Library Events, Museum Exhibit
    - Exhibit runs March 30 - April 17, 2017

    Every day, thrift stores receive donations of items with racial imagery—antique advertising cards, collectible salt-and-pepper shakers, vintage children’s books, and mugs with team mascots. Do these items perpetuate hurtful stereotypes or are they harmless reminders of past attitudes? Should thrift stores sell these objects or should they be “sorted out” of popular culture forever? This traveling exhibit, organized by the Kauffman Museum at Bethel College in Kansas, opens a conversation about race and ethnicity in Renton. The Renton History Museum will support this traveling exhibit with a local exhibit, Renton High School Indians: History of a Name, as well as programs and opportunities for community dialogue.

    Museum Hours: Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am – 4 pm

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
