At the Manger: World Nativity Traditions
Repeats every 1 Day(s), from 08:30 AM - 04:30 PM
Location: Marian Library and Fitz Hall
Cost: Free

Since 1995, the University of Dayton’s Marian Library has presented a selection of its expansive collection of 3,500 Nativity scenes from more than 100 countries, celebrating how people around the world ponder and picture the birth of Christ through many different cultural lenses.

Roesch Library is in the midst of a multi-year renovation; therefore, At the Manger will take place on a smaller scale, running Oct. 22 through Jan. 18.

This year's Nativity exhibits of the Marian Library will explore a different look—a touch of originality, creativity and magic where culture and religion meet.
