The Leatherby Libraries is thrilled to announce the launch of its inaugural virtual exhibit, “Telling Stories: One Room at a Time.”

This virtual exhibit tells the stories behind six of the Leatherby Libraries story rooms: the Virginia G. Carson, Ph.D. Group Study Room, the Sikhs and Sikhism in America Group Study Room, the Mendez v. Westminster Group Study Room, the Italian Heritage Archive Group Study Room in Honor of John N. LaCorte, the Henri Temianka Archives Multimedia Room, and the Frederic J. Kakis, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus Group Study Room.

As visitors make their way through the exhibit, they explore the origins of each of the story rooms, see photographs of the various artifacts and collections inside the cases of each room, and learn about the individuals, stories, and communities highlighted through their walls.

“Telling Stories: One Room at a Time” is an experience you do not want to miss.
