Library Displays


2nd floor South From the classic humor of Peanuts, to the crime-fighting adventures of Batman, to hard lessons learned from coming-of-age during wartime, there are comics and graphic novels to suit all tastes! Take a peek at some highlights from our collection. 3rd floor North A (near Administrative Offices) We are celebrating women sculptors in recognition of Women’s History Month, keeping with the theme of our current library exhibit, and because women sculptors need to be celebrated! It was not until the mid- late 19th and early 20th centuries that one can find any information on women sculptors. Come by and check out the creative works of these women! One of the women featured, Vinnie Ream, was the first and youngest female artist to receive a commission from the United States Government for a statue, at the age of 18. She created a full sized marble statue of President Lincoln located at the U.S. Capitol rotunda. ! 3rd floor North B (near the Graduate Reading Room) Blast from the Past!

In conjunction with Disability Services and the Hub, we have created a display in support of the events taking place on campus in support of persons with disabilities.
