Congrats!  This sci-fi maven was one of many awesome Goucher students who visited the Peabody Library earlier in the year!


We have a sizable collection of Star Wars and Star Trek early memorabilia, books, and posters in our Special Collections. As if the sci-fi gods were smiling, turns out there is an open exhibit display case available in the library. This is the first exhibit I’ve ever composed and created!

Goucher, come to the 3rd floor of the Athenaeum in the next few months to see what will be a whole display on our science-fiction collection. (There may even be a multi-media component!)
