Exhibits

Main Library: The LSA Staff Art Show, part of the annual ASSET extravaganza, celebrates the creative avocations of the Libraries staff.

Russell Library: “What’s in a Flag: The History of Georgia’s Flag 1956-2004.” Never has the power of symbols in society been so evident as in the contentious and continuous revisions to the designs of the Georgia flag. From the first flag to the current one, there have been eight different designs with some engendering significant controversy among factions in the state. This exhibit features collection items from state representative Janet Merritt, state representative Louise McBee, Gov. Zell Miller, and editorial cartoonist Gene Basset.

Science Library: " Stormwater Pollution and You." In the advent of the stormwater fee being assessed in Athens/Clarke County, this display shows ways residents and industry can reduce stormwater runoff and pollution.
