The staff from the UJ Library Archives ans Special Collections has mounted a new exhibition in the APK Library on the 6th floor foyer: "Famous Libraries of the World".
Did you know that Ptolemy III of Egypt (3rd Century B.C.) forced visitors to the country to relinguish their books (in those days you called them scrolls) to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina?
Did you know that 1.4 million people visited the Library of Congress in Washington last year?
These and other interesting facts, books and authentic library posters are on display! If you have any brochures or books that you can add to the exhibition, please come and talk to us!
