Two MAJOR events in the library this week...

TODAY from 2-4 pm on the third floor of the library, we will have GRAFFITI FOR FREEDOM to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. You are invited to come and decorate a "piece of the Wall" and learn about why this date is so significant.

Also, from 3:20 to 4 pm there will be an informational meeting about Reinhardt's Study Abroad program and next summer's trip to Central Europe!

Tomorrow (11/11) is Veterans' Day, and the library is holding a celebration to thank and honor all those who have served our country, and one man in particular. We recently received a tremendous and generous donation of approximately 5,000 materials--including books, art, media, maps and flags--from a single collector, Mr. Don Brown of Cartersville. Mr. Brown served in the armed forces for over 13 years as a member of the 101st Airborne. He has spent the past two decades amassing his collection of books on US military history, with a particular concentration on Civil War history. At 1:00 pm tomorrow we will be making a presentation of the Don Brown history collection to the library and the college. Please come out to view a selection of the donated materials and meet Mr. Brown in person. We would love to have everyone come out and offer their thanks to him for his service to the country and for his generosity to Reinhardt College!
