World Geography Collection

Yesterday the library hosted a reception celebrating the new Jill Harmsworth World Geography Collection, a wonderful group of books, maps, geography games and other materials for use by the Lawrence community. Established in memory of Lawrence parent Jill Harmsworth, the world geography collection is intended to support and extend students' geography awareness at all grade levels. Geography is defined as the study of both the social and physical conditions of Earth, and our collection includes a wide array of perspectives on physical and cultural elements of our global community. Thank you to the many people who supported the development of this useful and inspiring resource!
