I was a student in Shoreline from K through 12, 1960 to 1973, Sunset, Butler, and Shoreline. My question: Is this a permanent exhibit at the library?

I miss living in Shoreline. I am retired and living in Wahkiakum County, near the banks of the Columbia River. I would love to see this exhibit and would drive up north to see it in a heartbeat. Make a weekend of a trip to Shoreline and Richmond Beach. It looks like a really fine presentation!
