The 8:30 | Things to Know Before You Go (1/30)

EIGHT-THIRTY-GRAPHIC2

Here’s your daily dose of library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!

HAPPY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY TO REV. DENNIS J. GALLAGHER, OSA, PHD!

FATHER GALLAGHERWe want to send the warmest of congratulations to our own Father Gallagher, who is celebrating his fiftieth year as an Augustinian today! Later today, the blog will feature an overview of his impressive career and credentials written by Communication & Service Promotion team writer, Alice Bampton, who also spends part of her week as Father’s archival assistant.


TODAY IN THE LIBRARY…


Villanova Electronic Enthusiasts Club (VEEC) Regular Group Meeting. The VEEC is a social club, focused on recreation and relaxation. Participants gather once a week on (most) Fridays to play video games in a safe and fun environment. 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the first-floor lounge (Holy Grounds). Always accepting to new members. Questions? Contact: laura.matthews@villanova.edu


STARTING MONDAY AT THE FRONT DESK:
Red-Velvet-Oreos-01

If you’re anything like us, you’re greatly anticipating the arrival of those new Red Velvet Oreos in the stores in time for Valentine’s Day…and ugh, midterms!!   Stop by the front desk between Monday, Feb 2 and Thursday, Feb 12 and visit the big red ballot box (beautifully decorated by our own Outreach student worker, Katherine Spenzos!) and let us know the title of a book you love! We’ll pull out five or so lucky ballots to share some packages of Oreos with! Winners will be notified via email on Friday, Feb. 13.


THIS APP LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

Has anyone ever tried to use the eHighlighter app? We’ve always liked that feature on the Kindle that extracted highlighted text from ebooks into one document, but it looks like you can use this with “real” highlighters and “real” textbooks. “Real-ly!” :-)


SHAMELESS SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG ☺

Does your Villanova department, team, committee, group or club have social media accounts? Let us know so we can follow you and share your news! (socialmedia@villanova.edu)


GOT ANYTHING ‘SUPER’ PLANNED FOR THE WEEKEND?

You could curl up with a great book set in the Pacific Northwest. Or, maybe one set in the wilds of New England. Just a suggestion if there’s nothing else going on. 😉


QUOTE OF THE DAY
“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.” – Moby Dick by Herman Melville


NOW GO TO IT… AND LAUGH!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu
