In partnership with the Iowa Labor History Society, the Des Moines Public Library presents Speaking of Work: The Making of an Iowa Working Class; an exhibit that ties together oral histories, photographs, and more to inform and inspire our community about the history and continued efforts of organized labor, unions, and activism throughout Iowa and Des Moines. Photographs, exhibit materials, and physical items are on loan from the State Historical Society of Iowa. This exhibit will run until the end of June and is a once in a lifetime partnership with a community organization, the Iowa Labor History Society.
