Come Celebrate 10 Years with the Dana Medical Library!

This July Dana Medical Library celebrates 10 years in the Larner Medical Education Center. You are invited to join us in commemorating the “new” 10 year old library by looking back at the history of the library and looking forward at the changes that are still to come.
The library will be holding a reception on July 30th from 3 to 5 pm in the library’s main hall. Come have some cake, watch a slide show of pictures, new and old, meet the faculty and staff, and predict what the future holds for the library!
For more information, contact Kate Bright at kate.bright@uvm.edu or 656-0695.
