The staff of Temple University Libraries are excited about the start of the fall 2010 semester. We want to welcome all of our returning students back to campus, and we welcome all of our new students as well. Temple University Libraries has some new and exciting things in store for the fall campus, plus lots of interesting events for you to attend. Be on the lookout for our “Guide for Library Users” that will appear as an insert in the Temple Student News, and keep following our library blog throughout the semester.
On Friday, August 27 the Temple University Libraries held its fourth annual ceLIBration event in Paley Library as apart of all the Welcome Week festivities. The several hundred students who attended ate over 300 hot dogs, 400 cookies, 500 soft pretzels, 100 Jimmy Johns sandwiches, and more water and soda then we can count. In addition to the music and games, a highlight of ceLIBration was the Great Library Scavenger Hunt. Participants had to complete a series of tasks to find the answers to the questions, and in doing so they traveled to every corner of Paley Library.
The winners of the first hunt were Dion Trinidad (first place – shown below on the left), Dannielle Harrington (second place) and Laura Carione (third place). The winners of the second hunt were Katie Gensemer (first place), Kevin Chaya (second place) and Jennifer Cubbler (third place) – all three shown below on the right.
The Temple University Libraries thanks all the students who came out to ceLIBrate with us, and we look forward to a good fall semester. As always, we are here to help you succeed.
