Librarian Paul Ruschmann has curated a colorful and eclectic book display on Trees. The display includes titles on botany, global warming, gardening, deforestation, tree-watching (like bird-watching), literature, and children’s books on the theme. The display is a fun, interdisciplinary lens on an everyday object. Come on into the Library and take a look!
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
A tree that looks at God all day,
A tree that may in Summer wear
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Poems are made by fools like me,
GRCC’s Native American Student Organization (NASO) is hosting a free educational field trip to the Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture and Lifeways in Mount Pleasant on Saturday, Nov. 16 – and you’re invited! This grant-funded all-day event has the goal of educating GRCC students, faculty and staff on the Anishinabe history and culture that flourishes in the greater Grand Rapids area.
Come to the Library and take a look while finding out how you can get involved in NASO. You do not have to be Native American to be a member! To support the efforts of this student group, librarian Mary Johnson recently curated a book display of First Nations titles found on the Library’s 1st Floor. Additionally, Sophia Brewer curates a NASO Subject Guide with links to research resources.
