The Ort Library is pleased to announce several new displays for December. The first display located on the 3rd floor of the library showcases the Ludwig van Beethoven who was born 245 years ago in December 1770. The display highlights some of the resources the library has in its collections on Beethoven, including records, CDs, musical scores, and books.
The second display, located on the 4th floor, highlights the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1865 that outlawed slavery. The display highlights some of the resources that the library offers on this topic and includes a replica of the Emancipation Proclamation.
The third display is located on the 5th floor and celebrates the 60th anniversary of Rosa Parks and her refusal to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, AL in 1955. The display highlights some of the resources the library has on Rosa Parks and also resources that the library has on the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
The displays will be up in the library through the end of December. If you have any questions, please contact Theresa Mastrodonato (email@example.com) or MaryJo Price (firstname.lastname@example.org).
