Gift from Student on Display

Recently, Lin Yan, a former student worker in the Library, presented the Library faculty and staff with some gifts from her home country, China. These gifts included a wall hanging that symbolizes a Chinese good luck blessing, as well as a framed sculpture of a heroic female commander in the Ancient Chinese Army. These items will be on display in the International Lounge in the Library. Special thanks to Lin for these gifts; we will miss your hard work and happy disposition!
