CHARLESTON — Eleven guests representing libraries from eight countries recently visited Booth Library on the Eastern Illinois University campus.
The visitors were serving as summer associates with the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs in Urbana.
The group of international librarians spent about a month in Illinois touring libraries, participating in lectures and discussions, and visiting area tourist destinations.
While at Eastern Illinois University, the group had lunch, toured Booth Library and participated in a round-table discussion with library staff members.
During the summer semester, Booth Library’s regular hours are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 2 to 10 p.m. Sunday.
