Exhibits and events:

Connor Benson, one of our interns, worked with Becky and the Creative Writing Club to put together a new exhibit for the first floor of the library. The Creative Writing Club selected old exhibit photographs from the Archives. They then crafted poems and short stories inspired by the archival images. The images and their work are now on display. Check it out!

We also hosted our semi-annual Eating From the Archives event: this year was the Cookie edition! Thank you so much who enthusiastically participated. Highlights were the bean sprout ball, rose wafer, ginger cookies, and orange jumbles.
