The forerunner of todays comic books and graphic novels, the dime novel explored themes of adventure. During the Civil War, Dime Novels were perhaps the most popular form of reading for soldiers on both sides. The ZSR Library has an extensive Dime Novel collection in the Microtext Department that is well worth exploring.
During August 2007...
Albert Schweitzer, humanitarian, physician, and Nobel Laureate is the topic of this exhibit. He was a man who simply gave his entire life to the service of others. In recent years, Schweitzer has been somewhat forgotten for the exemplary human being he was, and this exhibit focuses on his life and service.
On Thursday, August 2nd, the 2007-2008 ZSR Staff Development Committee had its first event of the year! We loaded up the Student Life Taco Bell Van, Lynn’s truck, and a couple of other cars and headed over to the President’s Home to see “The Garage,” a comfortable lounge/recreation area where student organizations and other groups can hold events.
Upon arriving, at 2:30pm, we set up my Nintendo Wii, played Wii Sports and had cake and ice cream! By 3:30pm we had eaten most of the cake and ice cream and enjoyed a few games of Wii tennis and baseball. Check out these photos of our Wii players and spectators courtesy of Susan Smith!
