  • What happens at #memoriallibrary over winter break?  Well, we still have patrons using the library, but we take advantage of lighter foot traffic to host things like our first-ever #untour. Employees relatively new to the libraries went out on a hunt for particular locations in the building. At each location, they picked up a sticker to put on their scoresheets. The prize? Knowledge! Oh, and getting to know colleagues better #inputsuitofacommongoal #knowledgeistheprize Thanks UW Libraries #uwlibrariesonboardincommittee for organizing this fun event!
  • Congrats to staff member Sue Humphrey for winning our first ever Memorial Library sweater competition!  She was by far the favorite and easily defeated the competition. Thank you all who stopped by to vote!

Here are Auni’s thoughts on her time at Memorial: “I’d really like to relay a MASSIVE THANKS to all the library staff, because all of you made my 1 year of working at the Memorial Library so precious. I’ll treasure the memories (both good and bad) and apply all the knowledge that I gained while working (and trust me, I learned a lot about public services while working at the library) in the future ❤️” A massive thanks to YOU, Auni, and best wishes! #ourstudentworkersareawesome #uwmadlibraries #studentlibraryworkers #uwmadisonclassof2019
