Join the LAC—Fall in Love!

hen asked why my husband, Jim, and I have
supported the OSU Library for many years, our
immediate answer is, “Why not?” A current,
vibrant, fully-functioning library is an incredible asset for a
university, and for the many students, faculty, alumni, and
others it efficiently serves. We have that at OSU—The Valley
Library on the Oregon State campus is one of the best in the
nation; we are so proud of all it offers and all it has become!
We like to credit OSU Library with our long, happy
marriage! Jim and I “reconnected” in the Card File on a
beautiful, sunny, football-game afternoon our senior year,
when we were both searching references for papers we had
due. After many productive, happy hours “studying” together
that spring and our marriage that July, we flash forward to
now.
We have been blessed over the years with a continu-
ing connection to OSU and to the Library. We were happy

to contribute to the new
Valley Library building,
have attended many Library
events, and share our time
and our treasure. I currently
serve on the Library Advisory
Council, a group of interested
alumni, friends, and faculty,
who meet two times a year to
learn what is happening, to
go on tours to get information first-hand, and to give input
and support to Faye Chadwell, our University Librarian. I am
constantly amazed at the progressive, adaptive philosophy of
the staff; students and others are consulted on their needs and
preferences and listened to. It is interesting and exciting to
learn more about our award-winning Library!
Serving on the LAC is a great opportunity to support and
learn about the OSU Libraries and Press innovations, faculty,
staff, and be a part of a “good thing.” We are looking for new
members. If you are interested, please join us!
Visit and support OSU Libraries—you may fall in love,
too!
