Campus Open House: "Farewell to the Floor"

Location: 2nd floor, Hesburgh Library

Hesburgh Library

Please join the Hesburgh Library for a campus open house as it launches Hesburgh Library Renovation, Restoring an Icon: Phase One. All students, faculty and staff are invited to share in celebrating this milestone event.

The group will say farewell to sections of the second floor, rows and rows of wooden carrels, tables, and other familiar touchstones we’ve come to know and love.

Enjoy music from the past five decades of the building's history, holiday sweets, popcorn and hot cocoa. Renderings and plans of the vision about to be realized will be on display. Be sure to share favorite memories and your well wishes for another 50 years by signing the floor! While the floor will “disappear” in the weeks to come, we’ll have a photo memory to cherish and share.
