25th Anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake Exhibit

LP25-90in-TitleThe Library’s Fall wall exhibit has just been launched in the recently refurbished main library of the Hayward campus.

The display is a joint effort by the CSUEB University Libraries and the CSUEB Department of Environmental Health and Safety, produced to call attention to earthquake safety in our region.

The core of the display commemorates the 25th anniversary of the October 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake that caused widespread damage in the San Francisco Bay and Santa Cruz areas.

Other components call attention to the Great California Shakeout earthquake safety drill (runs through October 17, 2014), and an additional set of posters and display items highlight 3 major Bay Area quakes, including the 1868 Hayward, 1906 San Francisco, and 2014 Napa earthquakes.

The exhibit will run through March 1, 2015.
