ESSL turns 110!

Jan 21, 2011

[Forwarded from Nancy O'Brien]


We are celebrating 110 years as the Education Library in 2011.   Founded as the Pedagogical Library in 1901, this year marks 110 years for our library in working with students and faculty in education (and beyond!).

Please check out our anniversary announcement or share some memories of the library with us.  Maybe you want to check out more about our history or our photo album on our Facebook page.

We have a variety of events planned for the spring to celebrate 110 years, including a presentation and reception on Friday, March 4, from 4-6 pm.  Please save the date, and we'll send out more information closer to the event.

Join us in celebrating 110 years of history, services, collections, great people, and fun!
