Three students from the I-Art program displayed a fiber art sculpture on March 3rd-4th in the Book End Lounge. The fiber art was suspended from the central overhead lighting fixture and was a primary focal point for patrons entering the library.
Once upon a time, there was a zombie who resided in Carnegie Hall! As a matter of fact, if you pay close attention, you can still see it peeping through the windows. We were lucky enough to capture a photo, and we would like a story to go along with the image of this mysterious creature! The contest will run through Sunday, Nov. 2, and on Monday, the winner with the quirkiest short story or caption will win a free t-shirt! To enter, please leave a reply under this blog post.
Gourmet cupcakes, delectable cheesecake, freshly baked cookies, and tasty treats. These were the delicious desserts that were served last week as the Personal Librarians Program kicked off the fall semester with an informal meet-and-greet gathering in the Book End Lounge. The event provided an excellent opportunity for each of our AU librarians participating in the program to introduce themselves to first year students and for our librarians to get to know their students, as well.
Thank you to all who attended; you made the event a fantastic and memorable one!

Coral Lambert and one of her students, Lily Montgomery, have mounted a week-long art auction in the Book End Lounge. The auction will support a trip to the Pedvale Sculpture Park in Latvia this summer. Coral and her students will be building a large Earth Work Sculpture and participating in the International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art.
All are welcome to stop by Herrick Library to enjoy the art and/or to make a bid on any of the one-of-a-kind items on display. The auction will wind down on Friday, April 18th.
