Tour Itinerary

“Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience” Online Site Support Notebook

Important exhibit display information:
The first date of your exhibit display period is a Wednesday. This is the last day for the shipper to deliver the exhibit to you. Please do not plan programs on Wednesday, and we recommend not scheduling programs on Thursday in case of unforeseen—and rare—delivery problems. The last date in your exhibition period is a Friday, which should be the closing date for the exhibition (you may close the exhibit earlier if you wish). Because there is limited time available to get the exhibition from one site to another, libraries should have the exhibition dismantled and ready for pick-up on the Monday after the exhibition closes. This does not mean the shipper will always pick up the exhibit on Monday, but the exhibit should be ready to go on Monday morning.
