  • Book Sale Raises Money for FAVL

    Posted Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 6:29 p.m.

    On May 4, the Library held its annual book sale, a popular event attended by hundreds of students, faculty, and staff. This year the Library donated half of the proceeds to Friends of African Village Libraries (FAVL), an organization founded by two SCU professors, Michael Kevane and Leslie Gray. The idea of donating the proceeds of the book sale to FAVL came from a group of Library staff who are committed to social justice and have been collaborating with FAVL on several projects. The University Librarian, Liz Salzer, was very supportive and agreed to the donation. The event, coordinated by library specialist Matthew Lipson, was a success and raised $1,047 for the organization. The money will be used to support FAVL summer reading camps in the village libraries of Burkina Faso.

  • Stitching Stories of Miracles and Memories

    Posted Friday, January 14, 2011 at 9:42 a.m.

    Multicultural Reading Area, 2nd Floor
    January 14 - April 1

    Stitching Stories of Miracles and Memories is an exhibition that features embroidered and appliquéd fabric pictures called cuadros, created by the women of two art cooperatives, Manos Anchashinas and Compacto Humano, located in Pamplona Alta, on the outskirts of Lima, Peru.

    In cooperation with our campus-wide diversity theme, Legacies, we celebrate and explore the legacies of these women, in the form of their created visual narratives, that depict their previous life in the countryside, experiences of migration, and current realities in the shantytowns.
