Marriott Library is abuzz with final preparation activities for the October 26 rededication. Continuum Magazine featured the rededication in their fall issue. Whether or not you plan to attend rededication or visit the library in the near future (and we hope you will do both!), we wanted to get out the word about the event and services that will be impacted.
Mrs. Laura W. Bush, who taught school and served as a public school librarian in Texas during her professional career, will deliver the keynote address at the rededication of the J. Willard Marriott Library on Monday, October 26, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
The rededication ceremony will be held in the library atrium on level three and is free and open to the public, however, invited ticket holders will have priority seating. Overflow seating will be provided in library classrooms 1130 and 1150 on level one, where the program will be streamed live on video screens.
