A 10-Year Seminar Day Tradition: Library Open House


Sign enticing alums into the Sherman Fairchild Library.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, the Sherman Fairchild Library once again hosted numerous visiting alumni on Seminar Day, May 19, 2007. Undergraduate student Angela Chang, SFL Supervisor of Library Services Marie Noren, and librarians Judy Nollar and Daniel Taylor enjoyed greeting and giving tours for both returning and first-time visitors, highlighting library service enhancements over the past year such as added and renovated group study rooms, plus all updated (and many additional) computers including a half-dozen each of iMacs and Linux computers.

Previous undergraduate students applied for and received a generous grant from the Moore-Hufstedtler Foundation funding this extensive leisure collection.
