If there is any criticism of the exhibit, it is that the material got a little repetitive after a while. I am sure this is due to the limited resources they had. (They were probably also anticipating that not everyone would read everything.)

After a couple of hours touring the "Slavery at Monticello" exhibit, we walked about a block and a half to the main branch of the Detroit Public Library. They offer free tours, which are now on our list of things to do. We just walked through the library for about 15 minutes before it closed for the day. This building is fantastic, and I wish that more buildings were made like this today. This is a library that begs to be visited. Here are a few peaks inside.
Does your library look like this???
