Three New Library Displays for May 2014



Three New Library Displays for May

The Ort Library is pleased to present three new displays for May.
The first display, located on the 3rd floor, celebrates National Photo Month. The old adage says: One picture is worth a thousand words. Cameras installed on smart phones have made it easier than ever for  people to take photographs. We can keep thousands of pictures on our smart phones and computers. Every day we are inundated with photos on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media sites. This display highlights some of the photography books that the library has in its collection. We are also asking you to share your photographs with us. Send us a Tweet @LibFSU with the hashtag #OrtLibPhotoMonth. We will post some of the pictures in the library near the display. You can also stop by and leave your photo to share with others.

The second display, located on the 3rd floor, highlights Paranormal Day which is held every May 3rd. Paranormal Day is a day for all those who believe in paranormal activity to share experiences all around the world. This display highlights some of the paranormal books that are available in the library. We would also like you to share your paranormal story with us. Stop by the library and write a brief note about a paranormal experience you have had.

The third display located on the 5th floor of the library highlights The Dust Bowl was a time of drought for many US states that had previously enjoyed economic boom with the cultivation of wheat and grazing of cattle. When the drought began in 1930 many farmers were pushed off their lands when huge dust storms covered their farms in feet of dust that swept off the plains. This display highlights the history and timeline of the Dust Bowl. It also provides information on items that the library owns on the history of the Dust Bowl.

The three displays will be available through the end of May.

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