Celebrating our Seniors!

On Sunday, we said farewell to the Class of 2013.  During exam week, the library held a goodbye luncheon for 16 fantastic seniors who have have been working in all areas of the library.  In the words of director Kelly Jacobsma, “we truly couldn’t run the library without you.”

studentsOur Seniors are heading off to many different exciting pursuits, from graduate programs in clinical psychology, physical therapy, musicology, and biochemistry, to job searches, to law school, to an internship in DC.  When asked what their favorite memories were from working in the library, here were some of their responses:

  • Discovering previously unreached music library patrons through the LP giveaway
  • Creative shelf-reading dances
  • Providing that extra level of customer service by staying late with a student in the TechLab
  • Carefully selecting the location of the new giant beanbag chairs, including test drives in the elevator and on staircases
  • Going the extra mile to protect patrons from the effects of a broken lamp, including a call to campus safety
  • Extra careful (and creative) packaging of ILL items
  • Most of all, the wonderful relationships that developed with other library student employees and staff

Thank you for all of your excellent work in the library over the last four years!
