During October the librarians will be celebrating. What’s up? Are we celebrating the new computers, cooler days, interesting reference questions from new students, that we used 16+ reams of paper during the first weeks of September?
Well, no. October is Theological Libraries Month. Four weeks seem like a long time to celebrate, especially for anyone with introverted tendencies. We’ll be celebrating rather quietly with events that include a Reformation Display and a Scavenger Hunt. We invite you to join us for a day of celebration at our Open House, October 30. The Rare Book Room will be open to all, featuring works from the Reformation and some of our other treasures. We’ll also have treats for all in the 3rd Floor Lounge. We’ll have the drawing for prizes for our Scavenger Hunt winners.
Come celebrate with us!
- Put the Open House on your calendar—October 30.
- Stop in next week to see the new display in the Catalog Room.
- Start reading the new Library Blog. We’ll release a new Scavenger Hunt clue with each blog post. (The prize pool includes I-pod shuffles and Gift Certificates from the Bookstore.)
