August Events for Otterbein Community!

Check out the Becker Gallery's newest exhibit, Worlds Away: A Photo Story from a Traveling Librarian. The photos from the collection were taken by Otterbein Librarian, Jessica Crossfield McIntosh, and are images from her Otterbein-related travels to China and Africa. The exhibit will be available through September and celebrates the visit of 40 international librarians from the IFLA conference.
