Women's College is Spotlighted at Book Fair

We all love books . . . so how cool is this?

Blog Post Highlights:

"I was pleased and excited when the Special Collections at the F. W. Olin Library of Mills College was invited to exhibit books and archives from our collection at the California International Antiquarian Book Fair," said Janice Braun. She is Associate Library Director and Special Collections Curator.

"The fact that this is the first year that the book fair will be in Oakland and that Mills College has been an Oakland institution since 1871 seems like a perfect match," said Braun. "It is a wonderful opportunity to make our collections more visible to the public who may not realize that the Mills College library has such extraordinary resources."

The 48th California International Antiquarian Book Fair is this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Oakland Marriott City Center.

From the blog post:Op-Ed: Mills College Library is pleased to be in spotlight at book fair:
"Initially founded in the town of Benicia in 1852, as a young ladies' seminary, Mills College Mills is an independent liberal arts and sciences institution of learning for the San Francisco Bay Area. Mills became the first women's college west of the Rockies. While adapting to the changing times with graduate degree programs and expanding career-fields of study, Mill has continued to be an outstanding and well-respected school of higher learning for over 150 years."
