“The library always has activities going on, they not only have the Ronald Regan Exhibit but they’ll have other exhibits open as well. I recommend you check their website/calendar ahead of time to see if you’d be interested in anything they have to offer while you stay here in the area. It is not free to see the exhibits but they do offer discounts (senior discounts, military, etc) and they also have some free activities for big events like 4th of July so check their website out! ”
