A Snapshot of Snell's 20th Anniversary

After all the hard work and planning that our library staff put into the 20th Anniversary Celebration, it is good to reflect on such a successful event. Here are some photo memories for your viewing pleasure:

A large crowd showed up for Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero's talk in Snell's lobby.

The audience was able to ask questions.

As our featured speaker of the afternoon, David Ferriero was presented with a gift by Dean of Libraries Will Wakeling.

After the talk, there was delicious cake available for students who needed a break from studying for their finals.

The VIP guests at the event were invited upstairs to a reception.

President Aoun led everyone in a toast...

...and also cut the celebratory cake with Nancy Caruso (David Ferriero's co-op advisor), Provost Stephen Director, David Ferriero, and Dean Will Wakeling.
