Henry Hudson’s 1609 Voyage
The display commemorates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage to New York and his sail up the river that now bears his name.  In the display you can see a model of Hudson’s ship, the Half Moon, on loan from the 
Maritime Industry Museum at Fort Schuyler, located at SUNY Maritime. Along with the ship’s replica are diagrams of the ships interior, as well as a map of New Netherland, books containing “sailing directions” for Hudson, as well as items from the Pace Library collection which relate to the history of the Hudson River and the Hudson River valley. Books about Native Americans located in New York at the time of Hudson’s voyage are also available, as are photos of a number of boats that participated in the  June, 2009 Quadricentennial Flotilla on the Hudson River.

Faces of Liberty (March 5 - March 28 only)
Faces of Liberty is a traveling photo-journal display that puts human faces on complex civil liberties issues by describing the challenges experienced by ordinary men, women and students who faced unpopularity and adversity.  The exhibit documents 22 cases where people, who in defense of their civil liberties, have been helped by the NYCLU.  This is a walking exhibit with pictures in several locations throughout the library.  We invite all to take a minute and walk through the exhibit to read the stories that go with the faces.

Women and the Environment
March is Women's History Month.  April is Earth Month.  In honor of these two events a display Ecofeminism was created .
This display ended up being camera shy, however it did contain the following pictures of the original "tree huggers" and of Rachel Carson.  There were also documents created of Chipko, , The Love Canal and The Greenbelt Movement.
