BENJAMIN FRANKLIN: IN SEARCH OF A BETTER WORLD

Welcome!

The Library invites everyone from the Camden County College Community and the public to enjoy the Benjamin Franklin Exhibit and other artifacts!

This guide contains information about the exhibit Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World and links to resources related to Franklin and the themes of the exhibit. Wolverton Library at Camden County College is one of 40 libraries nationwide to host this exhibit during its national tour. 

About the Exhibit

Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World is based on a major exhibition of the same name mounted by the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Franklin’s birth. The traveling exhibition for libraries has been organized by the Tercentenary and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. It was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

The result is a unique 1,000 square foot photo-panel exhibit that combines representations of original documents, artwork and artifacts to explore one of the most extraordinary human beings the world has ever known.

Many papers come from organizations that Franklin himself helped to create, like the American Philosophical Society and the Library Company of Philadelphia. Maps, paintings, drawings, and objects owned by Franklin give insight into this prolific writer, scientist, humorist, diplomat, civic leader and international celebrity.
