- Special Library Exhibit. The Library is proud to share with the entire NSCC community a traveling exhibit, “For All The People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform”, presented by the National Libraries of Medicine. The exhibit will be in the Danvers Library from September 26th to November 5th. Health care reform has been a contentious political issue in the United States for more than a hundred years, and is as important as ever in upcoming Presidential election. From the beginning of the 20th century to today, citizens have made their voices heard in these debates. “For All the People” tells the lesser-known story of how movements of ordinary people helped shape the changing American health care system. If you are interested in curricular or Teach-In tie-ins, please contact the Library Director, Rex Krajewski. More information on this exhibit can be found at https://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/forallthepeople/index.html.
- Special Library Display for Presidential Election. Between October 3rd and November 8th, the library will present physical and virtual displays containing Library and other information resources about the upcoming General Election that support the Presidential Election Teach-In, the Forum on Tolerance, and faculty teaching.
