On Wednesday, December 21 the Rotary Club of Boca Raton held its weekly meeting at the S. E. Wimberly Library on the Boca Raton campus of Florida Atlantic University.  Dr. Linda Marie Golian-Lui is the Dean of Libraries, and an active Rotarian for over 11 years. 
The Wimberly library includes group study rooms, a graduate study lounge4, seating for over 1,200 users, an electronic classroom, ADA workstations, an audiovisual media center, and three computer labs. Signature collections include the Marvin & Sybil Weiner Spirit of America Collection, Arthur & Mata Jaffee Center for Book Arts, the Recorded Sound Archives, and the Print Music Collection.
The FAU Libraries consist of five branches with three facilities. Close to 1 million people visit the FAU Libraries yearly (enough to fill the FAU Football Stadium more than 32 times). The Libraries are open 285 hours every week during the academic year and house approximately 3.7 million items including books, periodicals, government documents, microforms, maps, media, and unique items. The Libraries provide access to over 100,000 journals and more than 580 databases in all subject areas. Each year over 1.5 million searches are performed using the Libraries homepage.
Rotarians were invited to view a special exhibit of Samuel Adams materials in the Spirit of America Collection prior to the luncheon. After lunch, Rotarians were offered a variety of library tours including a visit to the Gruber Artificial Intelligence Sandbox, the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, and the Recorded Sound Archives.
Currently under construction is the Larkin Collection of Presidential Letters, that includes a handwritten letter by every United States President. Dean Golian-Lui extended an open invitation to the Rotary Club of Boca Raton to hold an annual meeting at the Wimberly Library to see the new exhibits and collections.
