3-17-2015: Library Features Diversity Endangered Exhibit

The Greenville Technical College Library is hosting a free exhibit that shows the effect humans have on the Earth’s ecosystems.

“Diversity Endangered,” a traveling exhibit created by the Smithsonian Institution and on loan from the South Carolina State Museum, will be on display in recognition of Earth Day from April 6 until May 6, 2015. Library hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Every time a highway is constructed, a river dammed, a streambed diverted, or a forest cleared, the natural habitat of plants and animals is lost. While some species flourish in degraded areas, others that are more sensitive to changes in the environment vanish, and the diversity that depends on complex interactions between all of an environment’s elements vanishes.

The Greenville Technical College Library is housed in the Technical Resource Center (Building 102) on the Barton Campus on South Pleasantburg Drive. For more information about the exhibit, call (864)250-8319 or email gtclibrary@gvltec.edu.
