May Book Display

Our May’s Display will be in cooperation with the Criminal Justice Department here on campus as we pay tribute to Law Enforcement officers and those who have died in the “line of duty”. A week in May is set a side each year as Police Week and one day is designated as National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

March Book Display

In honor of National Women’s History Month, the Todd Library will join others in taking time to reexamine and celebrate the wide range of women’s contributions and achievements that are too often overlooked in the telling of our country’s history. Come in and check out our books and audio/visual materials either for enjoyment or a class project.

February Book Display

With this being such a “political year”, we have decided to focus on still another branch of the government for our February book display. February is the anniversary of the first session of the U.S. Supreme Court which met in New York City in 1790 with Chief Justice John Jay presiding. Come visit the Todd Library and learn more about the history of this governmental branch by checking out our selection.

January book display

How familiar are you with copyright laws and how they may apply to your life here on campus? January marks the anniversary of the Copyright Revision Law. The act (Public Law 94-553) contains substantial revisions of the principles governing acquisition and duration of copyright and deals with issues that have been raised in recent years concerning photocopying and the use of copyrighted works by public broadcasting and cable television systems. There have been even more additions/revisions since internet technology has become so prevalent. Come check out our book display and learn more about this important issue.

December Book Display

December is known as the month of “peace and good will toward all men”, but in the real world Human Rights are still being violated. December marks the anniversary of the UN General Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Come visit our book display and check out information on this most important issue.
