New Library Displays for October 2015

The Lewis J. Ort Library is pleased to present several new displays in the Ort Library. The first display, on the 3rd floor celebrates National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The display highlights resources the library offers on cyber security and showcases some of the most popular “bad” passwords that people use.

The second display, also on the 3rd floor, celebrates the 2015 Children’s Literature Centre’s CLC Book Award Winner for 2015. The winner of the CLC Book Award for 2015 is Otto the Owl Who Loved Poetry by Vern Kousky. The display highlights his book as well as some of the past winners of the CLC Book Award.

The third display, also on the 3rd floor, celebrated the history of tea and includes teapots from the collections of staff members of the Lewis J. Ort Library. This display will be up until December 2015. Additionally, you can join us on October 21, 2015 for a Tea ceremony where students will talk about the history of tea and present a traditional tea ceremony.

The fourth display, located on the 4th floor, celebrates some of Western Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania’s most haunted places and legends, just in time to celebrate Halloween. Come see some places you may want to visit to get the scare of your life.

The fifth display, located on the 5th floor is a celebration of the 125th anniversary of the founding of Yosemite National Park. This park, located in California was first designated as a national park by President Benjamin Harrison. It was just the third national park in the US at the time.

The sixth display, also located on the 5th floor, is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the final book of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. With the release of The Return of the King, J.R.R. Tolkien had completed what some consider the finest example of fantasy literature ever created.

All the displays will be up through the end of October, except the Tea Display which will be available through December 2015.
