The Library at the University of Tsukuba will be holding an exhibition in honour of its 30th anniversary in Tsukuba. (The university as an entity has existed for 131 years, but it has only been in Tsukuba for 30 of those years.)
The exhibition will take place from September 29 (Mon) to October 10 (Fri). Admission is free. It will be open from 9am to 5pm on weekdays and 1:30pm to 5:30pm on weekends. Children of elementary school age and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Displays will include a page of a Gutenberg Bible, a world map by Joan Amos Comenius (1592-1670), L'encyclopedie, ou Dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des arts et des metiers by Denis Diderot (1713-1784), Japanese poetry (waka) collections, hanging scrolls, and more.

The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
