Today would be Rachel Carson’s 107th Birthday, commemorated by the folks at Google in today’s Google Doodle.  If you’d like to learn more about why I think Rachel Carson is one of the most important person’s ever to have walked the earth, come talk to me…  and/or check out our lovely new copy of either her seminal work Silent Spring, or the most recent biography of her, On a Farther Shore, by William Souder.

Library Closure: Art Show Opening

Reminder that the Library will be CLOSED immediately at the end of classes today on account of the opening of the Art Show.

The Library will be a student free, photocopier free and printer free zone, so that the Art Show is the only focus.  Apologies for any inconvenience.  We’ll be back to business as usual tomorrow.
