Because I care about Libraries. Your library, under the stewardship of an engaged, invested and dedicated staff, supports academic achievement, diversity, inclusiveness, and community!
Happy Library Workers Day to all the Great people who work at Alden Library!!! Thank you!!!
Spotted Jorma in the building. Wonder how many of you know who I am talking about - yes I am showing my age.
Tonight, FREE for ALL @ 7p, The Athena Cinema. This week we focus on Saving Mes Aynak archaeological sites and their possible demise due to mining rights! Then a look at Our Last Refuge, about the Blackfeet Nations and their battle to keep their land. Join us! We help sponsor the Sustainability Film Series, and have been since 2012.
20 years ago I donated an old song book contained all of Ohio University's original band music-including university football songs long forgotten! Alden library should do an exhibit or a Facebook of it! I think it's listed under my name as donor
