Library Book Tree 2006

To celebrate the festive season, Library Services has setup its 2nd annual Library Book Tree.

There is a new seven and a half foot tree trimmed with some traditional ornamentation, but with a little something extra. It is decorated with facsimiles of our faculty members', staff members', and students' favourite books.

Anyone can add their favourite title to the Library Book Tree with a $2 donation. All proceeds from this fund raising event will be donated to the Santa Claus Fund.

1 Million Patrons!

The Vera Bracken Library reached a landmark event since it opened its new doors in the summer of 2003. During the month of November 2006, the library will have had more than 1 million visitors pass through its doors.

To celebrate the event, the library held a draw to determine who would be declared the "1 Millionth Patron". With any draw, there are prizes. Our prizewinners and their corresponding prizes are as follows:
  1. First Prize (and our official "1 Millionth Patron"): Alissa Liska - an engraved 2GB iPod nano
  2. Second Prize: Jeremy Kasprick - $25 Gift Certificate to The Campus Store
  3. Third Prize: Chantel Enns - $15 Gift Certificate to the campus Internet Café or Cafeteria

Thanks to all of our patrons that entered the draw and that have supported the library over the past 41 years. We look forward to celebrating more landmarks as our years roll on.
