This eye catching display includes newspaper articles published at the time of John F. Kennedy’s assassination 50 years ago, pictures of JFK and covers from books about Kennedy’s life and the assassination. The display brings back poignant memories for those alive at the time while educating those of younger generations. For all ages, it serves as a reminder of how the whole world can change in a heartbeat. The display was designed by and much of the contents were contributed by Kay Schurr.
In celebration of November as 2013 Native American Heritage Month, HSSE’s newest display features books and authentic examples of Navajo Art. The HICKS, Engineering, Physics and Chemistry libraries are also featuring displays with Native American themes.
