A Program in Celebration of National Library Week
Thursday, April 9 – 3:30 p.m. – Greenwood Library’s Atrium
What’s so special about Greenwood Library’s Special Collections? You are invited to attend an event that has been designed to answer this question. On Thursday, April 9, at 3:30 p.m., the Greenwood Library will host an event that will feature faculty, staff, and students reading excerpts from books and performing musical compositions that are among the holdings in Special Collections.
You are encouraged to come out and enjoy readings and performances by President Patricia Cormier, Dr. Craig Challender, Marty Dorrill, Dr. Mary Carroll-Hackett, Dr. Lisa Kinzer, Dr. Lily Run Ren, Dr. Gordon Ring, Dr. John Sturtz, Director of Multicultural Affairs Lonnie Calhoun, and Longwood students Rachel Burchard, Emily Kilgore, and Ashley Lauer. We may have some surprise guests, as well.
Attendees will have an opportunity to win one of three Barnes and Noble gift cards being given away as door prizes. Refreshments will be available following the event.
