The fabulous Baker-Berry Library is hosting this historic GBW 100th Anniversary Exhibition. New England Chapter member Deborah Howe has been the Dartmouth point person, and New England Chapter Exhibitions Coordinator, has helped to organize and install the show here at the final venue for this travelling exhibition.
