Main Library

Lincoln Library

Join us in the Rolland Center for Lincoln Research as we commemorate Mental Health Awareness Month with a temporary exhibit case highlighting the mental health struggles of Mary Lincoln. May 1-29.

Visit the Rolland Center for Lincoln Research on the first floor of the Main Library as we reflect on the life of Mary Lincoln and her experiences with mental health. Our new exhibit case will be unveiled on May 1, 2024, in commemoration of Mental Health Awareness Month at the Allen County Public Library. This case features photographs, documents, and newspaper clippings from the last score of Mary’s life as her struggle with her mental health becomes apparent. Notable items include a photograph of Mary with the “spirit” of her husband standing behind her and a transcript of her treatment while in an asylum. The nineteenth century was a time of vast social change, including how mental health was viewed; however, Mary didn’t have the avenues of support that can be found today. The exhibit will be open to the public and available to view until May 29, 2024. If you have any questions, please email Lincoln@acpl.info.
