Continue your attendees’ education and training at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

The Classroom is located on the first floor of the Library right off the main hall and offers built-in audio-visual equipment including an 86” interactive smartboard, a podium with microphone and four additional wireless microphones (two hand-held and two lapels).

Training seminars and educational sessions work well in this room as one large room accommodating 48 attendees. The room has a wall divider system so it can be divided into two individual rooms (North and South) that are perfect for conference breakout sessions. Note that the South Classroom contains the built-in audio/visual equipment, though we can set up needed equipment in the North Classroom.
