“Moon Cycles is a safe space for women or gender nonconforming people who want to be with other like-minded folks, who want to learn more about bikes,” Ryan Giorgi said. The bike collaboration meets on the first and third Monday of every month at the ReCYCLEry in Carrborro and gives women the opportunity to get assistance working on their bikes for no cost.

For the first time in years, the first floor gallery of Davis Library has a new exhibit on display, called "Guantanamo Bay and The Library at Camp Delta." The exhibit, a series of photographs of the detention center in Cuba, opened on Wednesday with a lecture by the exhibit's photographer, Chris Sims. Sims, who received his Master's in visual communications from UNC in 2003 and now works as the undergraduate educator director at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, photographed Guantanamo Bay in 2006 and 2010 after four years of requesting access — and being denied — 16 times. Sims said the exhibit was inspired by his curiosity of the detention center. “I was animated by the simple question 'What does Guantanamo Bay look like?'” Sims said during his lecture on the second floor of Davis Library.
