GlobeThe globe that hangs above the staircase at the Main Library captures the Earth's surface because it is based on a NASA satellite image. The globe enables us to see what astronauts see when they circle the Earth from outer space. The globe is is suspended and runs by motor to revolve just as the Earth does.

Humpty Pumpkin

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All of Obama’s horses
And all of Romney’s men
Managed to put
Humpty back together again

Working together, the bipartisan way
Teamwork for this egg rules the day
For pumpkins and president, ‘tis the time to vote
A happy ending for all is our great hope!
