2013 - 2014 Exhibits
Children and Libraries Exhibit (April 2014)
For those who have early memories of visits to the library, it may come as a surprise to learn that allowing children in libraries is a relatively recent historical development. This exhibit celebrates the libraries and librarians who fought to open libraries to children. View the materials on display to explore the many ways librarians sought to create welcoming spaces containing age-appropriate materials available to children. This exhibit was created by Donna Turner, library Collection Maintenance/Preservation Specialist, for National Library Week and Children’s Book Week. (2ndfloor)

Since the beginning of motion pictures, the law has been a prime topic for television and movie plots. This exhibit explores some of the most influential TV shows and movies based on the legal system. (2nd floor)

The case is currently on appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and has garnered national attention.
