    Hedges Library Celebrates Senior Book Day

Each year Hedges Library organizes a book reception for the Senior class, who are each invited to select a faculty or staff member to recommend a book just for them.

This year, 94 seniors picked 58 different faculty members to select and personalize a book for them. On the day of the event, faculty members presented the seniors with their books and spent time discussing their book choices and exchanging well wishes for the future.
