A nature exhibit from Cynthia Staley

Wed, 09/06/2017 - 18:19 -- Libstaff A


Campus Community:

I am delighted to share with you a nature exhibit from Cynthia Staley now on display in the main lobbies of the Ruth Ann Musick Library at Fairmont State.  This is the first of what I hope to be many exhibits highlighting the good work of our faculty, staff, and students at FSU.  I am sharing below just four of the twenty-one photos now on display.  All of them are remarkable and most were taken right here in West Virginia.  Our second exhibit, coming in September, will focus on the first 50 years of Fairmont State when we were known as Fairmont State Normal School. 

We are very proud of the work of our campus community in its many forms.   


More to come,

Reference librarian Sharon Mazure adds finishing touches

The Fairmont State University Holiday Tree Competition is being held this week on Main Street in the Falcon Center, and the Ruth Ann Musick Library is in on the fun!  The Library faculty and staff selected a crafty book theme for the tree, from the decoupaged star at the top to the wintery holiday titles nestled beneath.

Participants can "vote" by contributing non-perishable items, all of which will be donated to the Falcon Nest.  In addition to the popular vote, Tim Oxley and Bob Mild will be factoring in "style points." Voting will begin at 8 a.m. on December 14th and end on December 15th at 12 p.m. noon.
