You're Invited to Musselman's 30th Birthday Party

Join us in celebrating Musselman Library's 30th birthday!

When:  Thursday, April 28, between 2 and 5 PM
Where: Main floor

Musselman Library opened its doors on April 22, 1981 with a campus book walk. Over the course of five hours, 1350 student, staff, and faculty volunteers lined up to move the library’s collection from Schmucker Library across campus into the new building.

We won't be doing heavy lifting this year, but we will have cupcakes and drinks, a 1980s trivia game with prizes for the true 1980s trivia buff, and a photo booth where you can have you picture taken with some iconic 1980s hair. Feeling like Farrah, anyone?
