Library honored for presenting informational and varied exhibits

Booth Library has a history of hosting traveling exhibits from the American Library Association, National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Library of Medicine. Topics have ranged from the life of Queen Elizabeth I to Harry Potter to our award-winning Frankenstein exhibit.

Library staff has also created many of its own major exhibitions, including Teachers Tame the Prairie and Revolutionary Decade: Reflections on the 1960s. Other grant-funded programs, including America’s Music and Muslim Journeys, have earned national recognition.

Faculty and students from throughout campus are encouraged to participate in our exhibit and program series. Stay tuned for updates and ways to get involved in future programming.
