We have two new book displays in the 2nd floor lobby area of the Duderstadt Center. The first exhibit commemorates Black History Month, which is being celebrated all over campus this month. It showcases moments related to African American art, theater, music and more. The second exhibit commemorates Valentine's Day by highlighting the comics in our collection about love and romance.
This week in the Shapiro Lobby we are featuring a display for Black History Month that was designed by members of the UM Library Peer Information Counselors (PIC) program.
