Our Own Little Free Library


Unveiling the Little Free LibraryThe North Campus and Lowcountry Graduate Center unveiled a Little Free Library in May. The library was built and donated by Fred Herrmann, and was brilliantly painted by the two students pictured in this photo.

We hope lots of our neighbors, students and staff “take a book, or leave a book!”

The Little Free Library is located across the parking lot.

The University of Arizona has put together a great resource guide for discussing Ferguson, which is relevant for discussing the recent North Charleston police officer shooting case.

In this guide, in the section Framing the Issues, the authors suggest several databases which your university probably owns.

Access your library from the links on the right of this page, and check the titles in the alphabetical databases list, or as a title search in the main search box.

Some of the databases suggested include CQ Researcher, GenderWatch, JStor and the African American Experience. All great sources for examining and facilitating discussion.
