If rainy days make you gloomy, let the Curriculum Materials Library perk you up. We have more than 100 titles on rain & rainy days. A really great one is Raindrops Roll, (Juv GB 848. S28 2015) which features beautiful close-ups of flowers and creatures in the rain and has a rhyming text throughout.
The Georgia Review, the University of Georgia’s acclaimed literary magazine, is being feted on its 70th anniversary with an exhibit at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries through May 12.
“Necessary Words & Images” illustrates the history of The Georgia Review from its 1947 inception as a small regional magazine to its maturation as one of the country’s leading literary journals. The story is told through correspondence and other archival material from the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library and from the Review’s archives.
In 1986 and again in 2007, the Review bested other finalists such as the New Yorker, Smithsonian, Vanity Fair, and the Atlantic to win a National Magazine Award.
An exhibit on the history of the Equal Rights Amendment will be on display at the Russell Special Collections Libraries Jan. 19-May 12.

Anthony; the origins of the National Women's Party; ephemera from the ERA campaign at the local, state, and national level; and materials from the anti-ERA movement and Phyllis Schlafly.
