The month of May is winding down already, and the NE Library staff are amazed over how quickly these warm summer days are flying by. Before you know it, our reduced service hours will change again and we’ll be back at it, helping our students find the resources and materials they need for Summer classes in June & July. Come see us today at the TCC Library and check out what’s on display this month, before it’s gone!
Vacation Reads – Check out some of our fantastic Fiction as you prepare to hit the road over this Summer Break! We’ve got thrillers, chillers, romance, bro-mance, mysteries, histories, sci-fi, and much more! “It’s dangerous to go alone… Take a book!” This display will be available on the library’s upper floor throughout the month of May.
Get Graphic @ the Library! – Check out some of the amazing titles in our collection of comic books, graphic novels, and manga! We’ve got classic works of literature like Bronte’s Jane Eyre and Kafka’s Metamorphosis, re-imagined in graphic novel format, as well as big-name comics from DC and MARVEL, smaller independent comic publishers, and a growing selection of Japanese manga titles. There’s something here for everyone! This book display is accompanied by a special exhibit, featuring some wonderful classic comic books from the personal collection of our Assistant Library Director, Mr. Alex Potemkin.
Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month – Visit the lower floor of the J. Ardis Bell Library during the month of May to view an assortment of library materials (books and movies) that feature the authors, characters, and diverse cultures celebrated during this annual observance. Come check them out!
Broadway! – From West Side Story to Hamilton, posters and artwork from some of Broadway’s biggest shows will be on display in the Northeast Library’s lower level throughout the months of May and June. This visual exhibit will be accompanied by a selection of books on the history and magic of musical theater along the “Great White Way,” as well as DVDs of famous musicals and stage-plays. “Do not throw away your shot!” Come and see them before they’re gone.
iPhone-ography – Former NE campus photography student Brian Husch (c/o 2000) captured several-hundred images on his early-model iPhone camera, using a variety of focuses and filters. This fantastic rotating photography exhibit will be available for viewing on digital display screens throughout the NE Library, between May 1 and June 30, 2017.
The staff of the J. Ardis Bell Library on TCC’s Northeast Campus are pleased to present a wide variety of displays and exhibits throughout the year. It is just one more way in which we strive to educate, engage, and entertain our entire campus community, while expanding the learning experience outside of the traditional college classroom. We hope that you’ll come back often (to the library, and to our blog) to see what’s on display!
