The 1912 time capsule under Memory Walk was opened 100 years later in 2012.  These photos tell the story of what was found.  Needless to say, the time capsule used today does a much better job of preserving its contents!

Materials on loan from Special Collections, Wilson 6th floor.

The students at WWU are exceptional, but every year we like to celebrate those who are not only students, but also Student Employees that work here at the Library.  This display is to show off how much we appreciate all the work that they do at the Circulation Desk, in the Return Room, at the Teaching Learning Academy, for the Map Collection, Special Collections, the Writing Center, the Information Desk, and Collection Services.  They go above and beyond the call of the ordinary college student, and we owe a lot of our efficiency and service to the work of these extraordinary young adults.  We love our students!
