3rd floor Library display case
Kraemer Family Library
This December, the library is celebrating the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with a J.R.R. Tolkien themed display. It features books by and about Tolkien, in addition to memorabilia associated with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Born in 1892, author and philologist John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was a well respected scholar of Germanic languages and early/middle English poetry who channeled his love of those topics into the creation of the fictional Middle Earth.
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, immediately successful upon their releases, remain some of the best selling and most beloved novels of all time.
