In observance of Thanksgiving check out our hours during the break… Starting this Sunday, 11/23.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Lynn Library!
Most people know that our American celebration of Thanksgiving has roots going back to the pilgrims who came from England in 1620. But did you know that it was a Gettysburg connection that determined when we celebrate the holiday today? Check out this brief video for the explanation:
In light of the inaugural “TeaCups & CoffeeBeans” poetry open mic night, tomorrow at 7 on the Library Patio, I thought I’d post a poem relevant to the world of libraries and books:
There is no frigate like a book (1263)
by Emily Dickinson, 1830 – 1886
There is no Frigate like a Book

The library can get a little cold sometimes; the patio allows students to study outdoors while they enjoy the breeze from outside.
The patio has been opened since the beginning of the semester, but many students were unaware. The Library came up with the idea to have a party to let everyone know about the study area.
Mother Nature had her way with the rain that afternoon, but it didn’t stop the festivities.
Students, faculty and staff enjoyed food and drinks provided by Lynn’s catering staff, outdoors on the patio and inside on the second floor landing. Students seemed to appreciate the extra space now, and are happy the library made the move.
