The library will be hosting the 3rd Annual Environmental Art Show during the University’s Earth Week Celebration (April 18-25). The purpose of the Art Show is to showcase the artistic talents of our students, staff, and faculty while promoting sustainability and the environment.
As always the Art Show is comprised solely of University of Scranton student, staff, and faculty submissions, so the success of the show relies on the number of submissions we receive. All types of artwork are accepted for display in the Art Show, but they must be your own creation, and they must be environmentally themed. Our definition of “environmentally themed” is understood very liberally and includes: nature scenes, animals, environmental degradation, sustainability messages, recycled goods, and so on.
Please consider submitting to the show before April 12 and attending the Art Show’s Reception on Monday April 22 from 5-7 pm. All submissions will be returned to the artists before the end of the Spring semester.
We host a game night each semester for students, faculty and staff. We played Just Dance 4 on our new Kinect! We were celebrating the Library’s 20th Anniversary. Students could win prizes by filling out the quiz that accompanies the exhibit in the Heritage Room.
“The Proud Art of Beautiful Writing Shall Conquer the Hearts of All Men.”
On campus, the notebooks are available for purchase at the Weinberg Memorial Library‘s 1st floor Circulation desk for the price of $20.00 per set (cash or check). Off campus, the notebooks are available for order at $20.00 per set plus shipping and handling. You can either fill out and send in one of our order forms (to pay by check) or contact our Special Collections library at 570-941-7002 to put in a credit card order.
These Moleskine® Large Cahier notebooks are 5″ x 8.25″ with 80 acid-free pages and are packaged in sets of two — one in black with ruled paper, and one in craft with blank paper. Graphic artist April Francia, a University of Scranton sophomore double majoring in Political Science and Philosophy, created the notebook covers and decorative paper bands (as well as the Zaner-Bloser Collection logo) by manipulating digitized images of ornamental penmanship in Adobe Illustrator.

The Library will be hosting a Game Night on Monday, October 29th from 8pm till 11pm in the Heritage Room on the 5th floor. We’ll be celebrating our 20th Anniversary, playing some board games and NEW video games! We now have an X-Box with Kinect and we’ll be playing Just Dance 4! We also got the new Rock Band with keyboard! We’ll also have old favorites–Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros.
Hope you can join us and try out the new games! We’ll also have pizza, snacks, drinks, and prizes!
The evening was a wonderful success, and we’re so grateful to our event sponsors, the event planning committee, all of our Friends, and the many Library and University faculty and staff members who have contributed to our 20th Anniversary festivities.
The celebration is far from over, though – check out our calendar of events and join us for lectures, conversations, and our first ever wine-tasting fundraiser!
