On the afternoon of Friday, August 28th it was not business as usual at Paley Library. As it has for the past two Welcome Week Fridays, the Library was the scene of a party for our new students. With a DJ spinning the tunes, the students gathered for food, games, raffles, and other entertainment. ceLIBration is designed as a fun, non-library way to learn about the library. Several hundred students, some with their parents, visited Paley Library, and many explored all that the Library has to offer.
This year students were invited to participate in several arcade game tournaments that featured popular games such as air hockey, foosball, basketball toss and skeeball. The Library also offered a variety of board games for students who wanted to have fun with their friends. Jimmy Johns generously brought over lots of samples of their sandwiches. So while it was uncharacteristically noisy in the Library, it was for a good cause – and a good time was had by all.
