From Noon -1:00 PM, the Gleeson Library/Donohue Rare Book Room Poetry Pop Up was in full-swing! It was great to see our USF folks come up and have an interest in the limited editions and unique offerings featuring some of our noted Poets of Color display. The signed edition of Five Poems by Toni Morrison with art work by Kara Walker was a hit. There was a fascination in Leonard Baskin’s etched artwork and printing of James Baldwin’s Gypsy & other poems, and the equally charming Ten Poems by Rita Dove. I appreciated all our students, staff and faculty that came up to the table. We do this you! Special thanks goes out to John Hawk for his invaluable assistance and support, Kelci Baughman-McDowell and Randy Souther for helping get the word out.
Gleeson has a new study area! Grab your reading material, and unplug those potentially distracting devices — this new space is meant for serious, silent studying. Just in time for finals!
The new Silent Study Area is located on the 1st floor, past the scanner room in the Reference Department. Here’s a video showing how to get there from the library’s front gates:
