Four New Library Displays for September

The Ort Library is pleased to present four new displays for September.

The first display, located on the 3rd floor (under the electronic display) highlights the Ort Library’s Food Policy. The Ort Library allows snacks and beverages in closed containers. Appropriate snack foods include chips, pretzels, apples, candy bars, and other snack foods. Fast food items (such as McDonald’s, Burger King, and Taco Bell) and pizza are not allowed in the library. If you have questions, please ask at the Reference Desk or Circulation Desk. You can also find the Library’s Food Policy on the Code of Conduct Bookmark.

The second display, also located on the 3rd floor (by the main entrance) celebrates the life of Louis Pasteur (1822-1895). Pasteur is most known for the process of pasteurization, which is the process of heating and then cooling beverages (notably milk) to kill the bacteria found in raw milk. He was also well known for his development of the vaccine for rabies.

The third display, also located on the 3rd floor (located between the 4 stand-up PCs), celebrates Maryland’s Lighthouses.  The display highlights the history lighthouses and also provides information on several of the lighthouses still found around the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River.

The last display, located on the 5th floor, highlights this year’s Constitution Day theme: “Life, Liberty, Freedom, Prosperity”. This display provides several maps showing the United States, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania as they were when the Constitution was ratified in 1787.

The displays will be up through the end of September.

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