We have a publication called Graffiti in our library, which we hang in the bathrooms and in elevators. It’s not often that users add their own graffiti to our blurbs about services and events. This one, advertising our chat reference, cracked me up.


Shamrock Doily and Coasters

I made these for my exchange partner for the CL doily exchange. I got the pattern from Crochet! magazine, and after I saw the cute little shamrocks I knew I had to make it. I’m so pleased with how they turned out!

Smashy Smashy

This is one of the many reasons why I love being the Harvey Mudd College librarian.  No college will ever be as cool as HMC!

The Short:
WHAT: Smashy Smashy!
WHEN: 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
WHAT TO BRING: Flowers, fruit, and candy

The Long:
It’s that time of year again, when love is in the air, a song is in your heart, and a sledgehammer is in your hands.
Yep, it’s Valentines Day, which means its time for Smashy Smashy!

For those of you unfamiliar with the tradition of Smashy Smashy, every Valentines Day the chem club brings out a bunch of liquid nitrogen, a sledgehammer, and lets you dip things into the liquid nitrogen and then smash them.  Our only requirement is that you help us clean up some of what you smash.  Also if you can’t seem to find anything to smash, we will have a couple of things laying around for you to destroy.

The destruction starts at lunch this Saturday.

Now THAT’S a way to spend Valentines Day!!!!
