About the Coffeehouse
We’re into summer now, so it’s time for the library’s coffeehouse series. If you’re unfamiliar with the coffeehouses, they provide an opportunity to come to the library, enjoy a snack, and learn about resources and services available to help you with work or leisure interests. Coffeehouses are held on the first floor of the library in the reference area. We start promptly at 10:00, finish at 10:45. All staff and faculty are welcome to attend.
Refreshments, as always, will be provided. So come to the library and get a jolt of information along with your java. Reminders will be sent closer to the dates of the coffeehouse sessions, but mark your calendars -- we hope to see you there!
Schedule for Summer 2014
July 9: Summer Reads
What is summer in a library without reading? Come hear about the library staff’s favorite summer reads, and please share yours with us! See the list of books discussed here.
July 23: “Strength through Union:” Exploring the Consolidation
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the consolidation of Lawrence and Milwaukee-Downer colleges. Do you have questions about why or how the consolidation took place? Join us to learn more about the events leading up to the consolidation, about how it was carried out, and about how it continues to shape our present and future. Related archival material and a video of the presentation from Reunion 2014 are available here.
August 13: Special Sneak Peek: Films from the Archives!
A number of 16mm films from the Archives have recently been digitized, and we are so excited to share them! A public showing is planned for the fall, but attendees at this session will get a first look at two promotional films from the set: “A River, A College, A Town” (1957) and “This is Lawrence” (1972).
