News and Announcements

exhibit

The FAU Libraries, both at the Wimberly Library in Boca Raton and the MacArthur Library in Jupiter, have mounted a multi-media exhibit celebrating the contributions of just a small selection of the “Ordinary and Extraordinary Americans” who have contributed so much to the history and culture of the United States.

 

The moment you’ve been waiting for is here! The Wimberly Library will start its 24/5 trial period on February 11th. 

 

Gaelynn Lea

John Cutrone, Director of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, shares in his words why the Gaelynn Lea: Talk & Concert will be a really special event at the Wimberly Library on February 5th! "She’s fun and funky, goofy and cool," said Cutrone. "If you can come see her, you’ll leave with a full and open heart and some new ways of looking at things."

Every day, locally and nationally, we are confronted by examples of intolerance, hatred, and fear of anyone who is different or who has been defined as the “other”. It is imperative that all of us challenge our own fears and prejudices, stand up in solidarity with those who are being targeted, and denounce the acts of hatred, violence, and bigotry.
