Congratulations to seminary student Jewel Davis, the grand prize winner of the contest created in honor of Theological Libraries Month! Jewel won a $25 gift certificate to the bookstore. Runners up were fellow seminarians Russ Williams and Penny McPhaul. Russ and Penny sure do look happy with their prizes!
Prizes were awarded at the Seminary’s Fellowship Dinner held in the library last evening. The event was the culmination of Theological Libraries Month. Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and everyone who attended the dinner. A good time was had by all! Such a good time, in fact, that the a write-up of the event, with a few pictures, is now on the American Theological Library Association site!
To see all the photos taken during the dinner, click on the More Photos link just beneath the Photos sidebar on this blog.
The library has created its first video available on YouTube! Titled Pennsylvania Smith and The Quest for the Missing Source, it’s also available as a link on this blog. Check out the VodPod widget area on the right-hand side of the page. Clicking on the “Quest for the Missing Source” (right above our photo library tour) will get you there. Enjoy, and let us know what you think!
Students, faculty, and staff had a great time reading from banned books and listening to others read in the library yesterday. It was a hustling, bustling event, thanks in large part to the hard work of student Emily Gibbons. Great job, Emily!
In case you missed it, the event was even featured on the local news! Here’s a short video from WFMZ about the Banned Books event at Reeves.
