The Cabinet of Curiosities, the Winter Wonderland edition, is now open for display. If you didn’t notice the display last semester, it is located in the nook where the Reinhold Brown collection and underground comics live – right before the handicap bathrooms and picture collection area.
A few library staff members have created an initiative to work together to create a theme, curate, and decorate the cabinet twice a semester. We display books that relate to an overall topic and that patrons may not be aware of in our collection. Students and patrons are welcome to explore the cabinet and are encouraged to borrow any books they discover while peeking inside.
Some subject matter included in this edition’s Cabinet are: the science of snowflakes, 3D paper engineering, winter holidays, snow/winter themes, relaxation techniques, and some novels and comics either to be read in the winter or written about the winter.
The display will be up through the month of February. Come take a look!
