The Global Library at Buck promotes and celebrates world literature through signature programs such as Reading Circles and Featured Author Series. Located on the second floor of Buck Memorial Library (Buck 203), the Global Library provides an open space for reading, writing, small group work, and public events and exhibits related to world languages and cultures. The current book collection houses the personal libraries of professors Mauricio Parra (Spanish), Jim Matthews (French), Dan Terkla (English) all retired from IWU in 2018, and Marina Balina (Russian) and Lynda M. Duke (Spanish literature) both retired from IWU in 2019. For more information about the Global Library, please contact Dr. Carolyn Nadeau firstname.lastname@example.org
