Hackney Library’s 12th Annual Open House to Feature Ice Cream, Prizes, and More–Thursday, August 17, 4-6 pm!

On Thursday, August 17, Hackney Library we will be hosting our 12th Annual Open House from 4-6 pm on the first floor of Hackney Library! 

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.

This year’s Open House celebrates Wes Moore’s The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, which has been chosen as this year’s FYS Summer Reader.

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:

  • Amazon’s Echo Dot
  • Skullcandy’s GRIND Wireless Headphones
  • Roku Streaming Stick that works with all top movie and TV streaming services
  • Tile Mate Key/Object finder phone app to locate misplaced phones, keys, and other items
  • OontZ Angle Plus Portable Wireless Speaker
  • $25 Gift Card from Buffalo Wild Wings
  • $25 Gift Card from Starbucks

An opportunity to join the Friends of Hackney Library will be also be available at a table at the event for those who’d like to support the work of the library while reaping the benefits of membership.

So come check us out on Thursday, August 17th from 4-6 pm and see what Hackney Library and the Office of Student Success have to offer at this 12th Annual Hackney Library Open House!
