Life Beyond the Library

There's a lot of multicolored string wrapped around a gray brick.

In addition to providing the VCU community with access to information, spaces and resources, the library personnel at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences also enjoy photography. Showcasing a variety of subjects and locations, Life Beyond the Library offers a glimpse into the interests and perspectives of the people that make the services and spaces of VCU Libraries possible.

Employees at Tompkins-McCaw Library were invited to submit their most interesting, inspiring, and entertaining photographs from their recent travels. Twenty five of those images were selected for display in the Tompkins-McCaw Library Gallery. 

The exhibit is free and open to all during normal library hours. Parking is available for a fee in the 8th St. parking deck. If special accommodations are needed, please contact Thelma Mack, research and education coordinator, at (804) 828-0017.
