Community Open House

Come celebrate our beautifully renovated library!

The construction is completed and we're bigger and better than ever! To celebrate, we're hosting a Community Open House on Friday, September 12. Festivities will start at 11am, and wrap up in the early evening. We're still finalizing the program for the day, but wanted to give you a taste of what's in the works:
  • We're lining up a performance by Notre Dame's Concert Choir.
  • We'll be running a few drop-in library tours.
  • Artists Mary Beth Akre of Loyola and Kevin Raines of Notre Dame will be on hand to discuss the paintings they're creating for us, and to show off their progress so far.
  • The Research & Instruction Department will present a couple of quickie workshops on social networking software, including Library Thing and Flickr.
  • We'll be running a quiz game and raffle, and of course there will be food and drink.
  • Library Director John McGinty will be giving a talk on the future of libraries.
  • And we'll be adding a few more events as well!
As the date draws closer, we'll finalize the program and make sure it gets online. We hope that you'll be able to stop by at some point in the day, and join us as we celebrate our wonderful new spaces.
