Friday at the Library: COME CELEBRATE!

There will be all kinds of celebrations in the Library this Friday afternoon and we hope to see you all there!

1-2 PM. Library Skybridge.  Celebrating 50 years of providing government information to the public!  We have been a federal depository library since 1962 and we will be showing off with cake, speeches, and displays of weird government documents (jigsaw puzzles, comic books, how-to-grow-hemp).  Did we mention cake?

2-3:30 PM.   Library Presentation Room.  (Wilson Library 164).  Four Western professors, all expert researchers, will explain how they use government information in their work.  One will be Andy Bach of Huxley College's  Department of Environmental Studies.

4-6 PM.  Main Reading Room (Wilson Library 4 Central) The opening of the Northwest Collection in its new home, the Main Reading Room.  There will be a reception from 4-5 and from 5-6 John Scurlock, a great Washington photographer, will discuss his pictures of the Cascades.

Oh, and a bonus!  All day go to Special Collections (Wilson Library 6th Floor) to see "The Owl and the Woodpecker," a display of amazing photographs by Washington photographer Paul Bannick.
