This week is Middle Eastern Culture Week here at Gettysburg College! Every year, the International Club organizes a week of cultural activities centered around one spot on our globe. The Library is always eager to help out in any way we can. This year, we are hosting an exhibit of photographs created by our students and faculty. I’m sharing a few here, but you can view them all online, as well.
