Sen. Hagel Forum, Exhibit at UNO
Omaha - Former U.S. Senator and UNO Alumnus Chuck Hagel is the focus of two events being held at the Criss Library this election season.
On Friday, Nov. 2, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Hagel will hold a town hall about campaigns, current issues and his victorious campaign in 1996 against then-governor Ben Nelson and Attorney General Don Stenberg.
The town hall is part of a larger exhibit in the Criss Library’s Osborne Family Gallery focused on Hagel’s ’96 campaign. The exhibit, called “Campaign 1996: Hagel for Senate” features artifacts from the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives, which were donated to UNO by Hagel and his family.
“Campaign 1996,” which opened Monday, Oct. 2, runs until Sunday, Nov. 11. Criss Library’s Osborne Family Gallery is open during normal business hours. Monday through Thursday the library is open from 7 a.m. to midnight, while on Fridays it is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Saturdays, the library is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays, it is open from noon to midnight.
For questions about the town hall or the exhibit, contact Jessica Agler at 402.554.2496 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
