Congratulations to our Graduating Student Workers!

The end of the academic year is always a little bittersweet. Sure, we're looking forward to a relaxing summer and excitedly thinking about ways in which we can enhance students' experience here in the library, but we have to wave goodbye to yet another class of fantastic student workers. This year, we bid a fond adieu to Justine Ferrara, Taylor Matto, Erin Monahan, Dana Saad, Liam Fama, Olivia Headen, Sally Ng, and Walid Jawad-Hussain. Their work over the past few years has been critical to our success not only as a library but as a fixture on this campus. Needless to say that they will be missed. 

To continue our tradition of adding a book in each of their names into our collection, we've selected the following to be added to our circulating stacks. Each book selected reflects the subjects that the student devoted their studies to while at Fairfield and will be a valuable resource for future students in the same fields to use in their own research.
