In November, W. W. Hagerty Library will host an exhibition titled, “The Power of Civil Society: the Fate of Jews in Bulgaria.” This documentary exhibition features 21 posters that detail through photographs, documents and text how 50,000 Bulgarian Jews were saved from Hitler’s grasp during the Holocaust. The exhibition covers the years 1940 – 1944 and is presented by the Republic of Bulgaria’s Institute for Culture in cooperation with the Centre for Jewish Studies at the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski.” An opening event will be announced in the coming weeks.
In late October, Hahnemann Library will showcase illustrations from the Joe Bonham Project, a series of portraits of wounded US servicemen created at military hospitals around the country. The Joe Bonham Project represents efforts of wartime illustrators to document the struggles of U.S. service personal undergoing rehabilitation after traumatic front-line injuries.
The Project will be on display Tuesday, October 29th through Tuesday, November 12th and an opening event will be held in late October.

Wondering which Philadelphia zip code has the lowest number of residents with smartphones? Or, what the personal savings rate is among households in Pennsylvania by census tract? Perhaps you’d like to know the penetration of farmers markets in urban areas in the northeast?
It is an exciting and busy time in the Libraries as we start the new academic year. Only a few days into the term and already our libraries are filled with students reading and working at computers. The intensity of Drexel students continues to impress me. It is like none other I have experienced, even in the large research libraries of the big state universities and elite private colleges where I spent my former years as a library administrator.
