April 8, 2014 – 50th Anniversary: The library staff are asking all faculty, staff and students to help us celebrate the library and what it has grown into 50 years later by re-creating that book line at 3:15 pm.   There will be a short message from President McMillan right before the book line is re-created and photographed for posterity.  

ReadingThe library will celebrate from 2:00-4:30 pm on with cake, classic flavors of soda, an online booklet displaying the history of the Albright library, a 1960s backdrop photo opportunity,  original 1964 music, as well as a PBS video of the American experience in 1964.  Please try to join us in this event and encourage your student workers and/or students to share in this moment of Albright history.
