Libraries Events


Holiday Heat Setback

Kyle Wehrend (aka "Bill"), who dwells in the Media Department, knows how to dress for winter: layers! To conserve energy, physical plant will begin turning the heat in campus buildings off on Dec. 24 and back on Jan. 4, the first day campus re-opens. Depending on the weather, it might be chilly, but Kyle will be prepared to be comfortable!

New Stamp Vendor

Kat Hart, in Serials, has volunteered to be the stamp vendor for her Main Library colleagues after the beginning of 2005. She relieves Amy Petit who has served selflessly for several years. Kat will let everyone know when and where to buy stamps when we return from the holidays.

Holiday Party

David Smith (Access Services), Katie Gentilello (DLG), and Kyle Wehrend prepare to enjoy the holiday fare.

Mrs. King would be so proud of Florence, who provided seasonal music for the holiday gathering. Bill Coscarelli later took a turn at the ivories.

Dontaves, son of Annette Wiggs (ILL), seems to be eyeing the sweets table.
