October offers some new displays in the Ort Library. On the 5th floor, we have a display on Maurice Sendak, famous as the author/illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are. The display includes some prints from different books that Sendak illustrated that are housed in the Special Collections Department.
On the 3rd floor, we have a display on Clara Barton, Civil War nurse and founder of the American Red Cross. Also on the 3rd floor, we have a display for National Vegetarian Awareness Month. We highlight some of the books that the library owns on vegetarianism.
Finally, we have our ongoing display on the 3rd floor, History of Cameras: From Brownies to Digital. This display highlights some of the cameras that have been used throughout the 20th century, including a Kodak Brownie and a Polaroid camera. This display will be available until January 2013.
