New Library Displays - Summer 2017

Three new library displays are now available at the Lewis J. Ort Library.

The first display, located on the 5th floor, celebrates the 150th birthday of Frank Lloyd Wright. As many people know, we have 2 of his houses within an hour of Frostburg, Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. The display provides some history of Wright and showcases some of the books we have on his architectural works.

The second display, located on the 4th floor, highlights the 100th anniversary of the first Pulitzer Prizes being given out. The display focuses on some of the books that have won Pulitzer's in literature and history. A biography of Pulitzer is also included in the display.

The third display, located on the 3rd floor, highlights the Appalachian Trail. In the summer, many of us look forward to being outside and some may contemplate hiking parts of the Trail. The display highlights some of the resources the library offers on the Appalachian Trail and provides a brief history of the Trail.

The displays on the 4th and 5th floor will be up through the end of August. The display on the 3rd floor will be up through the end of July.
