Please join Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery this week in celebrating National Library Week. This year’s theme is Libraries Transform and the UMBC community and Library staff are asking “What does transformation look like at our library?” In light of the ongoing international refugee crises as well as the larger immigration conversation here in the U.S., the Library has chosen to showcase authors and other creators in our collections from some of the countries impacted by the 2017 travel ban. Be sure to stop by the new display in the Reference area of the first floor.
The capstone event of UMBC’s participation in National Library Week is a Humanities Forum lecture given by Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress. Thursday evening’s event, titled “A Conversation About Digital Access,” will begin at 5:30 pm in the Linehan Concert Hall in the Performing Arts & Humanities Building. This event is free and open to the public.
