University break October 5 was a celebration of Hiebert Library’s 50th birthday.
The building opened in October 1962 as the fourth, and largest, structure on a campus that was only two years old. The library was named for Cornelius Hiebert, who gave the major gift for construction. John and Maria Lohrenz, missionaries in India, were also large contributors.
The Unquiet Library is a time to sit back, unwind and “spin the black wheel” at Hiebert Library. During these events, our hosts will discuss and play some amazing music (much of it from our extensive vinyl LP collection). As proof that the library is not just for books or silent contemplation, the Unquiet Library programs are designed to share music in reflective, engaging and sometimes even loud ways. Please join us from 12:40 to 1:50 on the dates indicated below.
