Western Libraries is pleased to be a part of WWU's Fall Family Open House on Saturday, October 22 by offering the following:
Pick up a map for a self-guided tour at either the Learning Commons Info Desk in Wilson Library or the Circulation Desk in Haggard Hall (HH), and explore the Libraries’ many wonderful spaces and collections. Learn about the various resources and services provided by the Learning Commons, which include: the Student Technology Center, the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio, the Tutoring Center, and the Teaching-Learning Academy. Stop by HH 246 between 11am and 2 pm to learn more about the Digital Media Center (DMC), WWU’s newest Learning Commons partner. Designed to serve Western with a facility for new media instruction and production, the Center includes a TV studio with a green screen and cyclorama wall, cameras, control room, and a lighting grid.
Check out the special exhibit, “Plenty of Things to Do,” featuring original manuscripts and artwork created by renowned artist, illustrator, and long-time resident of the San Juan Islands, Doris (Wernstedt) Burn, (who authored and illustrated the 1965 classic Andrew Henry’s Meadow), on display in Special Collections (Wilson Library 6th Floor) between 11am & 2 pm.
Explore the Map Collection (Wilson Library 170) and its many maps, globes, and other cartographic resources, (including trail maps and topographic maps of the Pacific Northwest), between 11am & 2:00.
Gather with families and students near the Wilson Library side of the Mann Family Skybridge to enjoy cider and donuts from 4 to 5pm.
And last but certainly not least, members of the “Canines on Campus” program will also be available at the Wilson Library end of the Mann Family Skybridge from 10am to 6pm, so drop by to meet some of the loyal animals who provide comfort to students before and during finals week!
There will also be LOTS of other fun activities taking place all around Western between October 21-23rd. Check out the Fall Family Open House website for more info!
