About the Coffeehouse
It’s time once again for the library’s summer 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. Unless otherwise noted, coffeehouses are held on the first floor of the library. 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 2016
July 6: Summer Reading
Started to plan your beach reading? Got your own summer reading underway? Come and hear about the library staff’s favorites, and share yours as well! See the list of titles discussed (and a few more) for details.
July 20: Archives Film Fest
Join us on Wednesday, July 20th at 10 am in the Warch Campus Center cinema as we share highlights from a new set of digitized 16 mm films from the LU Archives. Films date from the 1920s to the 1970s and feature campus scenes at Lawrence and Milwaukee-Downer College, athletics, the Conservatory, student life, and faculty and academics. There’ll be popcorn!
August 3: Library Art Crawl
Come join us for a tour of all the artistic treasures in the library. Beth Zinsli, Curator of the Wriston Art Center Gallery, will tell us about select art as we walk through the library, while enjoying delicious treats along the way. We'll begin by meeting up at the reference desk, and depart from there for our trip around the building.
August 17: Makerspaces and the Maker Movement
Just what is a makerspace? At this session, we’ll talk about what a makerspace is and why you might want to know. We’ll also talk about some of the technology available at the Lawrence makerspace, including 3D printers. Finally, we’ll also provide an opportunity for a hands-on activity—you’ll leave with something cool you’ve made yourself!
