Stetson University Celebrates 125 Years as a Federal Depository Library – Pic of the Week

This year, Stetson University’s duPont-Ball Library celebrates 125 years as a federal depository library. Stetson became Florida’s first federal depository library in 1887. Federal depository libraries serve a vital role, promoting equality under law by making federal documents accessible to all. Several dignitaries were on hand to help celebrate Stetson’s achievement. Among those in attendance were Mary Alice Baish, the Assistant Public Printer and Superintendent of Documents for the Government Printing Office; Bob Apgar, the Mayor of Deland; and Sue Ryan, the Dean of the Stetson duPont-Ball Library.  Locate a federal depository library near you by visiting the Government Printing Office site: http://www.gpo.gov/libraries/
