Library Orienteering is going to be the name of the game next week, as incoming freshmen enrolled in Summer Experience participate in sessions designed by library staff to familiarize them with Mantor library and the academic support services offered here.

Unless you've been under a rock for the last month, you've seen and heard about the tragedy of epic proportions that is unfolding in the Gulf. I can't discuss it too much, because it makes me feel helpless, and sad, and surprisingly homicidal, for a pacifist. But to remind us all of the fragile, remarkable life forms we need to protect, there will be a tribute to some of the beautiful gifts from the sea in the lobby display case. Traveler and shell seeker Jan Morton, of Wilton, Maine, has generously loaned many fine examples from her collection, and we've complimented them with shell books from the Mantor shelves. The new display will be ready for viewing early this week. Come in and check it out!
