Providence Public Library’s fourth annual Exhibition and Program series called HairBrained is focused on hair.

The HairBrained exhibition features a selection of items from Providence Public Library’s collections: postcards, photographs, pochoir prints, magazines, historic children’s books, advertising trade cards and more.
