Fifty campaigns can create a lot of memorabilia.
The reception will begin at 3 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Ben Rogers, the director of the Poage Library, said the event will have hotdogs, apple pie and popcorn.
Former U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards will also be in attendance.
“It [the exhibit] is specifically about presidential elections,” Rogers said. “Basically 1800 to 2000; 200 years of presidential campaigns and how they used to have different kinds of materials. Before there were campaign buttons, there were campaign medals and coins and cigarette wrappers and all kinds of things they were advertised on.”
Rogers said the exhibit features campaign memorabilia from many different sources.
The exhibit is open during the Poage Library’s regular hours, which are 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The exhibit will be on display until mid-November.
