It is a holiday tradition that the students, law staff, faculty, and library staff of the Schulich School of Law collect food for the Food Bank. Law School is a competitive place so an added incentive is the friendly (!) contest among the three program sections and the faculty/staff team to donate the most food items. Coordinated by the Law Student Society President Anthony Rosborough and Head of Circulation Anne-Marie White, over three weeks a total of 2,074 food items were donated. The Law Student Society also donated $200 to the Food Bank. Thank you to all those who donated, cajoled, and counted during a busy time of year! (P.S. The Faculty/Staff/Library Team won!)
This year, we’re building a Christmas tree for the Killam Library lobby out of old bound journals. It’s a way to creatively reuse journals that have been replaced with electronic resources.
Join us on Monday, December 1 starting at noon to help us build the tree. We’ll have Christmas music and cookies, so take a break from studying or work to join in the fun. We’ll keep building until the tree is finished, so stop by the lobby any time that afternoon (but not too late) to give us a hand.
From all of us at the Dalhousie Libraries–we wish you all a joyful, restful holiday and the very best for the new year!
