Italian Week at the Library

This week, the library is proud to participate in the Eighth Annual Italian Week celebration, sponsored by Loyola's Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. In addition to hosting Thursday evening's lecture by Salvatore J. LaGumina, professor emeritus and director of the Center for Italian American Studies at Nassau Community College in New York, the Loyola/Notre Dame Library is hosting an exhibit throughout the week. Stop by the library and learn more about the medals of honor awarded to Italian Americans during World War II. The exhibit is located in the Gallery, the library's main lobby, and will continue through Thursday, February 28.

A second exhibit inside the library highlights books on Italian history and art, as well as cookbooks and travel books! This exhibit is located on the first floor, to the right of the Research Assistance desk.
