|View books honoring Black History Month at Merrifield Hall|
In honor of Black History Month, there is a small and informal "James Baldwin Memorial Library" in Merrifield Hall, in the first floor "faculty office cluster" lounge outside Room 122D. The lounge area is open Monday-Friday, usually from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This is a collection of books accumulated and contributed over a number of years, dealing with black history, literature, politics, and culture. Students helped organize the collection a couple of years ago, and since then, there have been new additions added with happy randomness, so it's a good place to look around and see what you find. The library is open to everyone and has a "honor system" check out. Just sign out any book and keep as long as you need it, then return and take another. Feel free to send your students over for class projects. For more information, contact Sharon Carson at 777-2764.
