Pop-up exhibit in Ellis Library Colonnade: A Bouquet for Spring

The birds are singing, the leaves are sprouting, and the flowers are blooming: spring is here! To celebrate, Special Collections is bringing out a set of botany books from the 1500s, 1700s, and 1900s. (We’ll be back with books from the 2100s once they’re available, so stay tuned!) Some of them describe wildflowers and others garden plants, some are for information and others for appreciation, but all of them are fully illustrated and waiting for you.

So stop and smell the roses! We’ll be on the Ellis Concourse near the Information Commons on Tuesday, April 16, from 2pm until 4pm.
