As part of the One Book One Independence (OBOI) 2019 programming with the Independence Public Library, please join us on a tour of Independence’s own Mental Health Institute (MHI) beginning at 1:00 pm on February 16th. The tour will be led by Mike Cook, MHI Plant Operations Manager, with visits to the auditorium, the cafeteria, the infirmary, an operating room, a ward now turned into offices, and part of the underground tunnels. The tour concludes with a self-guided visit to the “Days of Yore” museum which is a repository of items and equipment on display from another era that draws attention to the history of the hospital.
Advanced registration is required for this free 90-minute tour and space is limited. Please note there is limited handicap accessibility and a considerable amount of walking. To sign up, please contact the library at 319-334-2470 or email email@example.com. Other tours are scheduled for Saturday, March 2 and Saturday, March 16.
