Here’s your daily dose of library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!
THIS IS NEW!
Welcome to The 8:30 – a daily blog post that will provide you with a quick rundown of all that day’s events in the Library and other interesting news and links to check out before you start your busy schedule. We’re here, as well, to make the thought of an ‘8:30′ something to look forward to in the morning! Anyone who’s ever had an 8:30 class will probably know what we’re talking about!
TODAY IN THE LIBRARY…
Department of Philosophy meeting in Room 204 from 12:30-2:00 p.m.
The Library will be closed on Monday, January 19 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
PLAN TO ATTEND
The Center for Peace and Justice Education invites you to a talk by the 2015 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. keynote speaker Bryan Stevenson on Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 5:00 p.m. in the Villanova Room in the Connelly Center.
THE PRINTED BOOK LIVES ON
According to sales figures and trends, the physical book is a resilient warrior in the era of e-books after all–as if we ever had any doubts. Read the article on Financial Times.
