Thinking Things Library News

The latest library book exhibit titled ‘Thinking Things’ is about things that are common -- and not so common.

We are surrounded by things, yet we rarely think about them, and the stories behind them. What do things mean and why do we form stronger connections with certain things? The exhibit highlights books about curious collections of uncommon things and the people who keep them. ‘Thinking Things’ is an exploration into human-object relationship and showcases books on object philosophy and the social and psychological aspect of material culture.
