Alkek Library Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

Welcome to the first edition of the University Library’s electronic newsletter for the Texas State University community for the 2015-2016 academic year!  We hope that students, faculty, and staff will stay connected with the Library through our eNews features, including information about services, collections, and events at Alkek and the Round Rock Campus Library.

This month’s issue features many articles related to the Alkek Library’s 25th anniversary.  We especially encourage you to join in our celebration with a reenactment of the 1990 Book-It Brigade.  A “human chain” of students, faculty, staff, and community leaders will pass six books from Old Main (home of the original campus library) to the Alkek Library, linking the past with the present.  The first 400 participants will receive free commemorative t-shirts.  Refreshments will be provided at Alkek afterwards.

Where:  Meet at the scrolling marquee sign in the middle of the Quad – from there, people will form a human chain linking Old Main and the Alkek Library.

When:  Wednesday, September 23; human chain begins forming at 9:30 a.m.; book pass will start shortly after 10:00 a.m.
