EXHIBITS: Past, Present and Future
By Carol Gebel, Acquistions

If you are facing the battle of bug and pest in your yard this summer, be sure to see Leilani Hall’s exhibit on gardening and pick up a copy of her bibliography on the first floor. Learn to tell the good bug from the bad. Also, check out the books in the nearby table case.

Our current exhibits are scheduled to extend until the end of summer, which will give everyone more time to enjoy them. Charles Martell has graciously agreed to let us enjoy his birds in the library media link throughout the summer. Two exhibits are undergoing slight changes: Library Artistry (first floor) and Portraits (second floor). The second floor exhibit on campus faculty diversity will remain throughout the summer to allow it to be seen by students and other visitors to the library this summer.
