TOPEKA – (September 7, 2018) – There has been a change in location for the Magna Carta exhibit on display at Pittsburg State University next week.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the judges of the 11th Judicial District are hosting the display on the history of the Magna Carta – the 13th century document that set the course for democracy in England, and greatly influenced democracy in the United States. The exhibit has been on display during the month of August in Baxter Springs and Parsons. The new location at Pittsburg State is listed below:
Pittsburg State University
Leonard H. Axe Library
1605 S. Joplin St., Pittsburg
Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m.
Friday 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday 12 noon-5 p.m.
Sunday 12 noon-11 p.m.
Schmidt and the judges encourage all local residents, and particularly students, to visit the display and learn more about the Magna Carta’s legacy.
The exhibit was produced by the American Bar Association in honor of the Magna Carta’s 800th anniversary in 2015. Although that anniversary has passed, the exhibit is on traveling display. More information about the display and the Magna Carta is available on the attorney general’s website at www.ag.ks.gov/magna-carta.
