During the event, we will both be welcoming new students, faculty, and staff to the Library, to the Office of Student Success, and to Information Technology (IT) and welcoming back returning students and employees.
The Open House, which is sponsored by Hackney Library, the Office of Student Success, and the Friends of Hackney Library, is also open to the public.
As in years past, we will have plenty of swag for attendees to enjoy:
- All who complete a brief online survey at the event will once again receive one of our wildly popular Library Open House t-shirts ( designed again this year by Barton art professor Susan Fecho, it incorporates themes inspired by Moore’s book).
- In addition, other giveaways from the Library and the Office of Student Success (OSS) will be available to attendees visiting seven “stations” around the library. Each is designed to introduce new Barton community members to the library’s, OSS’s, and IT’s faculty/staff and services, as well as to refresh the memory of returnees.
- Satisfy your sweet tooth by partaking of our “build-your-own” scrumptious ice cream sundae again this year in the library’s foyer (with the help of Tony Tilley and his stupendous Aramark crew).
And last but not least, a door prize drawing for fantastic prizes will be held at 5:30 pm, so plan to hang around until then, as you must be present to win!
Here’s a list of door prizes you could score during the drawing at 5:30:
