Libraries Events

Thanksgiving Luncheon

The Libraries' Thanksgiving Luncheon will be held Nov. 16 the 4th floor of Dean Rusk Hall, and once again we will have two servings: one at 11:30 a.m. and one at 12:45 p.m.

In addition to hosting the luncheon, LSA is also sponsoring a drive for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia in conjunction with the Luncheon. Feel free to bring canned goods, shelf-stable items (like peanut butter, mac & cheese, etc.), toilet paper, and paper towels, and give thanks by giving back!

LSA Bowling Team Schedule

The Battle of the Bookish concluded with two wins for the UGA English Department and one for the GV903s, but the lone victory "was an 80 pin shellacking of the English Department!" according to one observer. This week the GV903s were in fine form, soundly trouncing a group of UGA students and winning three games with total scores of 573, 470, and 492 against the opponents' 367, 387, and 408. Rachel Parnell (Serials) was decidedly the MVP of the night, scoring three strikes in a row in the first game.

Cheer on the GV903s at Kingpins Bowl & Brew (now serving Cajun food) in the Homewood Hills Shopping Center at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays. The schedule is:

Nov. 21 (against ABC Package)

Nov. 28 (against Blind Pig Tavern)

Exhibits

Main Library: "Ghana 2007: Summer Service-Learning Project." The College of Environment and Design will hold an informational meeting about this year's project Nov. 15. The exhibit features cultural artifacts, including art, books, photos and fabrics. For more information: www.uga.edu/ghana.

Hargrett Library: A look at Vaudeville is being installed. Details to come.

Russell Library: "Affecting the Lives of Millions: The Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965". The Immigration and Nationality Services of Act of 1965 was a turning point in United States policy regarding immigration. While changing previous legislation that functioned on a rigid quota system, the Act of 1965 gave preference to refugees and families, removed quotas from countries in the Western Hemisphere, and based some entry to the United States on levels of skill. In the forty years since, the foreign-born population of the United States has tripled in number, now prompting new legislative debate.

Science Library: "Centennial of the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources 1906-2006" The oldest existing southern forestry school was established in 1906 through an endowment by George Foster Peabody.

To celebrate the centennial, the Georgia Forestry Association and Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources have published a coffee table book The Centennial History of Forestry in Georgia: A pictorial journey. Story boards depicting the history of forestry in the State of Georgia have been displayed at the State Capitol and in the School. A selection of the storyboards are at the Science Library.

Circle Gallery: A Glimpse of Croatia: The Photo Journal of an Unforgettable Study Abroad Experience."
