Rohrbach Library Open House - The Rohrbach Library will be having our third open house event on Sept. 19, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year, we have added a pirate theme and have scheduled the open house on Talk Like a Pirate Day. The event gives KU students a chance to explore the library and discover the resources and services that we offer while having some fun and possibly winning prizes. Students will take a self-guided tour around the building to different stops where they will interact with staff to learn about the library. So far, the top prizes include two $50 cash prizes and four $25 gift cards to the book store. There will be a place for the students to list a course on their ticket, and any professors who would like to use this library tour for credit or extra credit in their classes can contact professor Krista Prock, email@example.com or professor Karen Wanamaker, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
