DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The University of Dayton’s Marian Library is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a new exhibit and concert.
The exhibit will run from August 13 until October 5 and highlights the library’s history and items from its collections, including statues, rosaries, art, and more.
The concert will be held on October 18 in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and will feature the Marian Consort, a UK-based vocal group, that will perform Marian music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
Marian Library Director Sarah Cahalan said, “These events are two of the many ways we strive to make our materials and knowledge accessible to the community as part of our mission to make the Blessed Virgin Mary better known, served, and loved.”
The Marian Library is recognized internationally as a destination for the study and appreciation of Mary, mother of Christ. It holds over 112,000 books, including more than 12,000 rare editions.
