Marshall Public Library Hosts Miniature Collection

Marshall Public Library

Small is big at the Marshall Public Library in December.


During the month, the library will be hosting a collection of miniatures from exhibit creator Susan Mann. Mann has been building and collecting miniatures as hobby since 1983 and the display consists of dozens of individual items, as well as multiple full scale and half scale dioramas.


"The exhibit includes Mann's first project, 'Granny Parker's Produce,'" said Zane Beal, Reference Librarian. "It's a detailed mockup of a produce stand, capturing the story of a real woman who brought fruit tree seedlings to Pocatello from England."


Mann built some of the items using clays like Fimo and Sculpy, along with objects and materials scavenged from around the house. Others, she purchased from miniature shows and conventions from across the United States. Mann also commissioned pieces of intricate, small-scale cross-stitch work from Pocatello resident Heidi Stauffer.


"Together, the immensely detailed miniatures present cozy and expressive reflections of everyday life," Beal said. "It's an exhibit that should fascinate children and adults alike."


Library visitors can find the display on the second floor, next to the landing of northern stairs and elevator. The exhibit will run until January 3, 2017.
