ceLIBration Welcomes New Students To Temple’s Libraries

If you think that libraries are no-fun zones, think again.

On the afternoon of Friday August 24 business was anything but usual at Paley Library. As part of the University’s Welcome Week event, the Temple University Libraries hosted ceLIBration. Offering food, music, and fun, ceLIBration was an opportunity to encourage new students and their parents to visit Paley Library, enjoy the facility, and meet staff members. Several hundred students and their families joined in the festivities.

One of the highlights of ceLIBration was a “Guitar Hero” video game competition. Seven students competed against each other for the title of Paley Guitar Hero Champion and a $100 gift certificate. The winner of the competition was Chris Sekula who amassed a huge score in dominating the competition. Later, a grand finale raffle offered more gift certificates for local restaurants and the Pearl movie theater.

Here are a few pictures of the event, starting with the Guitar Hero competitors:
