Charles Dickens’ #achristmascarol was published #onthisday 175 years ago. Follow Scrooge’s transformation in these illustrations by Arthur Rackham.

#ThrowbackThursday congrats to this term's graduates, part of a long tradition going back the College of Hawaiʻi's first graduating class in 1912! That 1st class consisted of (left-to-right) Leslie Clark, Young Fook Tong, Louise Gullick, and William John Hartung (not pictured).

UN Human Rights Day and #MapMonday crossover:
ICYMI, these interactive story maps from ESRI--originally created for International Women's Day--show vast disparities in women's health around the world. The stats depicted by the maps include female life expectancy, the difference between life expectancy for men and for women, and the percentage of births attended by health care workers. http://ht.ly/yIZQ30mVQQT

We may not have snow in Manoa but we have Christmas in Hawaiʻi.
Holiday stories are a popular topic, particularly for the opportunity for unique, Hawaii-style illustrations. Enjoy a collection of interesting stories, art and music from the library’s collection. #hawaii #bookstagram

Hamilton Library's elevator gallery, December 7th - January 4th

The bridge gallery is hosting the exhibit Photovoice 1.0. The exhibit displays the work of 31 participants in the Institute for Human Services' Housing First program, who took the photos and used their own words to describe the difference in their lives before and after entering the Housing First program. The initial exhibit will be in the gallery until December 11, to be followed by Photovoice 2.0, a follow-up exhibit, which will be displayed until January 11th. The photos illustrate the dramatic changes in lives and help people to understand homelessness and Housing Firstʻs approach to alleviating it.
