During Saturday’s Library Open House, we had about 100 students participate in the Duck Drop, along with their families, for a total of over 500 people. Participants went up to the third floor of the library and threw rubber ducks at targets floating in the fountain. A total of 61 students were successful with 82 ducks that hit their targets.

Four of the students won a $50 gift certificate to the Butler University Bookstore:

  • Lauren Allen
  • Brooke Benesh
  • Taylor Clark
  • Mike Murtaugh

Congratulations to each of you!

We also had several students who actually got ALL THREE of their ducks into the targets:

  • Mary Donnell
  • Trevor Phenis
  • Emily Mago
  • Molly Swigart
  • Lauren Verner

Great effort to you five and thanks to everyone who participated!

Irwin Library has a new Laptop-Charging Station in the Information Commons area on the main floor.

If you are using a laptop in the library and need to charge your battery, we have two “universal” chargers available near the Information Commons Desk. Use the Manual on the table to determine which tip to use, plug it into the end of the adapter, and charge away!

As always, if you have any questions, please ask at the Information Commons Desk.
