On Friday, August 29, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Paley Library’s first floor was transformed into ceLIBration headquaters. ceLIBration is the Libraries’ annual Welcome Week extravaganza, and it welcomes new students to the Temple University Libraries. ceLIBration offers a fun opportunity to learn about the Library and meet the people who work there. With plenty of food and music, as pictured below, there is plenty of activity for the new students.
This year the turnout was great, and hundreds of students visited Paley Library to participate in the festivities. In addition to video games and quizzo, the Library offered Secret Cinema, a well regarded classic film event that is popular in Philadelphia. Many prizes and gifts were given away during several raffles. The Library once again held a Guitar Hero III contest, and several students turned out to try their hand at becoming our new Guitar Hero champion. This year Derek Burton, a freshman, emerged victorious with the highest score in two rounds of competition. Derek is pictured below showing his Guitar Hero skills.
