This past week, we installed fresh exhibits on the second floor of Dunbar Library, replacing the exhibit on the university common text The Fault in Our Stars by librarian Kathy Reynolds.
In connection with National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week (Nov. 15-23, 2014), we have some materials about U.S. Representative Tony Hall’s efforts to fight world hunger as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.

We have Representative Tony Hall’s Papers (MS-341), quite a large collection at 199 linear feet, here in Special Collections & Archives.
The Tony Hall materials are also in connection with the Reference Department’s book display, on the third floor, of books on hunger and homelessness. (Check one—or more—of them out!)

Also on the second floor, we installed an exhibit about the Dayton Council on World Affairs Records (MS-46), which we also have here in Special Collections & Archives. The exhibit gives a brief history of the organization’s activities since its founding in 1947.

These exhibits will be up through at least the end of the year. We hope you’ll take a few minutes on the second floor of Dunbar Library and have a look!
