ACTC Librarians Sara Brown and Pamela Klinepeter will present “Adventures in Demolition: ACTC’s Library Renovation Project.” The project at the College Drive Library in spring 2012 included changes to the layout, space and collections.

ACTC Library Director Matthew Onion will present a session on the last year’s New Harmonies exhibit on American Roots Music that was held at the college. His session is titled “Museum and Library Collaboration: One Library’s Experience with the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street.”
