On Friday morning, educators and organizers held the grand opening of the ULM Multicultural Library.
It's a satellite of the main library, but dedicated to literature focusing on histories and cultures from around the world.
"It allows us to really see ourselves within a book but also to peer through that book as a window into another culture," said Lynn Clark, organizer and DREAM director. "It's really hard to find good multicultural literature together in one place."
The library also features a video production room and international student lounge, as well as unique finds like the Harry Potter collection in several languages.
It's funded by the Board of Regents and New York-based Carmel Hill Education Fund, which runs an internship program at ULM and pledged $25,000 to help supply the multicultural library with books.
