Fans of the Wizard of Oz are excited about the first-ever official traveling educational exhibit coming to a library in Illinois.

Illinois Is All About The Wizard Of Oz

It seems like I've been seeing a lot about the Wizard of Oz in Illinois lately. Of course in the summertime, many towns throughout the state have an outdoor movie night for families. Several of them feature the Wizard of Oz. Recently, I discover Oz Park in Chicago which is themed after the movie. Find out more about that, HERE. Now, I found out about a library that is hosting a Wizard of Oz exhibit.
