Congratulations to Graduating Seniors Who Worked in the Libraries!

The Friends of the SC Libraries honored them with books and a reception. See a complete list of graduates and book donated in their honor.

Student library assistants play an important role in providing quality library service. Each year, the Friends honor graduating student assistants by donating new books in their names.

Below is a complete list of the 2012 graduates, with links to the online catalog record for each book.

Additionally, the Friends of the Smith College Libraries will host an Ivy Day reception for alumnae, seniors and their guests, to honor our hardworking student library assistants. Meet library staff and view special exhibits.
