Three New Library Displays for April

The Ort Library is pleased to present three new displays for April.

To celebrate National Library Week, held April 14 – 20, 2013, the first display, titled "Highlighting the Variety of Resources in the Library" is available on the 3rd floor (main entrance).  The display highlights the many varieties of resources the library offers: books, DVDs, CDs, records, e-books, and much more. 

Did you know that the phrases "Makes your hair stand on end", "So-so", and "In a pickle" were all coined by Shakespeare?  The second display, also located on the 3rd floor (located between the 4 stand-up PCs), was created by Emily Zumbrun.  This display showcases Shakespeare and highlights the many phrases that are now common in the English Language all thanks to Shakespeare. 

The last display is located on the 5th floor and celebrates Maryland Archaeology Month.  This year's theme for Maryland Archaeology Month is "Points in Time: Formal Biface Typology in Maryland".  The display highlights some of the projectile points that have been recovered from different Maryland archaeological sites.

The displays will be up through the month of April.

If you have any questions about the displays, please contact Theresa Mastrodonato at ext. 4425 or or MaryJo Price at ext. 4889 or
