Books in Honor of our Library Student Assistant Graduates

For many years the Darling Library has held a tradition of placing a book in the library in honor of library student workers who, in Human Resource terms, must be "terminated" by reason of graduation. Graduating seniors choose a book that reflects their major or special interest and that matches with the over all mission and focus of the collection. A book plate is affixed inside the front cover of the book "in honor of [student name]," the graduate receives a certificate in recognition of their time of service to the library, and their names are immortalized in a note in the library catalog record.

Sadly, we have had to terminate five of our finest student employees as of this week (each with an honorable discharge):

Danilo Pereira, MBA
(Employed since January 2010)
Band of Brothers by Stephen M Ambrose.

Sebastian Mailu, BA in Business & Management
(Employed since January 2010)
No Longer Forgotten by Stanley M. Mutunga

Judy Nzeki, BA in Psychology
(Employed since January 2010)
A child called "it" : an abused child's journey from victim to victor by Dave Pelzer

Elizabeth Hahn, BA in Social Science (Emphasis in History)
(Employed since August 2011)
Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard

Juan Carlos "JC" Lugo, BA in English Literature
(Blog Student Editor since January 2013)
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers

We applaud our graduates and thank them for their contribution to the Darling Library during their time at Hope.

These books will all be available for check out from the Darling Library in the coming months.

What a wonderful tradition! This is a great way to commemorate their hard work as well as to remember them after they graduate. Thank you, Robyn, for doing what you do. Seniors, you will be missed!
