Burke Library Open House

Come Enjoy some Snacks!

The Burke Library at Union Theological Seminary, Columbia University, hosted an Open House for the community yesterday.  We had a steady stream of visitors from 2-4:30PM, who enjoyed the drinks and snacks and good conversation.  In homage to "study breaks" and the recently departed "twinkie," we offered, as one visitor exclaimed, "a ziggurat of cloud cakes!"  Surprisingly, to some, they were not only a hit, but the most talked about item on the table.  Viva la twinkie!  One of the surprises was the visit from an old friend of mine from Chicago, John Hubers.  John is finishing his dissertation at LSTC in Chicago, and is currently doing research at Burke.  He joined us toward the end of the afternoon.  It was a delightful surprise to see him again and catch up.

By afternoon's end, we had a good number of visitors, probably between 30-40, who came in for refreshments and conversation.  And of course, to meet all of our staff.  We'll think about the twinkies for next time...
