Hundreds of students attended Raider Rally last week; most stopped at the Library table. Katherine & Kathy passed out candy, “swag” and campus maps. They showed students how to create a free New York Times account.

Library employees will also be hosting a table on Involvement Day, Wednesday, Sept. 6 on Olivarez Plaza.  We hope to see you there!
