Three New Library Displays for June

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

The first display, titled "Honoring the Life of Helen Keller: 1880-1968" is available on the 3rd floor (main entrance).  The display provides information about Helen Keller and her struggle to learn without hearing or sight.  Several books are also on display that provide additional information on Helen Keller.

The second display, also located on the 3rd floor (located between the 4 stand-up PCs), celebrates LGBT History Month.  The display highlights the history of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and its repeal, along with information on which states now allow same-sex marriage.  The display also highlights books from other University of Maryland Libraries on LGBT topics.

The last display, titled “Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Derechos, and Blizzards: Oh My!!!” is located on the 5th floor and highlights different types of weather.  Information on how tornadoes are categorized and information on the different types of clouds is included in the display.  This display will be up through the end of August.

The displays on the 3rd floor will be up through the end of June.

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