UNC Asheville Library Exhibition Highlights Changing Role
Mon, 08/26/2013 - 12:18pm
UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library will host a reception at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28, to introduce the new exhibition of photos and vintage technology, called “Our Evolving Library.” The reception will provide library patrons and supporters a chance to talk to library staff about future needs and direction of library services.
The “Our Evolving Library” exhibit will include items from the time when UNC Asheville’s early incarnation, Asheville Biltmore College, was housed at Seely’s Castle, and documents the library’s history through the transition into the Internet era.
“Reflecting on the role of the library over the course of the university’s history gives us an opportunity to think about the significance of the library over time and how we can best adapt to changing needs,” says new University Librarian Leah Dunn. “We hope that those who love the library, use the library and need the library will join us at the reception and give us feedback. I am looking forward to sharing ideas with our users and learning how we can serve them better.”
The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public; the exhibit continues through October 30. For more information, call Anita White-Carter at 828.251.6434.
