Summer exhibits focus on science fiction, travel
The Marvin Foyer on the north end of Booth Library is home to four new exhibits this summer.
The north side of the foyer takes a look at "Get Your Kicks on Route 66" and "Celebrating the National Park Services." The exhibit includes a large map of Route 66, which stretches from Chicago to Los Angeles, and examines the 97-year history of the National Park Service, with a look at national parks such as Yellowstone, Olympic and the Great Smoky Mountains.
The south side of the foyer hosts exhibits about "Jules Verne: Father of Science Fiction" and "Steampunk World." Verne is a French novelist, poet and playwright best known for his adventure novels and for the genre of science fiction. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery.
These Booth Library exhibits were curated by Booth Library support staff members Jeanne Goble, Joseph Hall-Ingram, Michele McDaniel and Sally van der Graaff.
