Explore Your Library Day returns Oct. 3

The annual Explore Your Library Day returns Oct. 3 to University Library. The popular library orientation event is designed to encourage students to go deeper into the hallways and towers of Deering and University libraries, tackling puzzles and games in the name of T-shirts, prizes, and, of course, snacks.

This year’s clue-filled puzzle asks students to guess Willie the Wildcat’s major by solving six simple puzzles in such locations as the Transportation Library, Mitchell Multimedia Center and a new recording booth in the Information Commons. Those who complete the challenges are entered into a drawing for an Apple iPad.

Each year, Explore Your Library Day engages hundreds of students learning to navigate the vast building — and the even more vast array of resources available there. Open to any Northwestern student, the event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. and begins just inside the entrance to University Library.
