Join Us on October 6

Join us for Burke Library's grand re-opening celebration at 4 p.m. on October 6! We are excited to officially welcome you all back after a summer spent renovating the first floor, creating bigger and better spaces to support teaching, learning, and research. Come enjoy cake & punch, remarks by Vice President for Libraries and Information Technology Joe Shelley, and showcases of new spaces and services.
