The fall semester has seen the Birnbaum Library Fishbowl put to good use as an event space. In November, Communication Studies Professor Julian Costa read from his book, David Campbell: Story of a Career, about the pioneering work of educator David Campbell. In December, the Fishbowl hosted a zine workshop and pop-up art fair organized by students and art department faculty; and most recently students affiliated with Aphros, the student-run literary magazine on the New York City campus, read selections of their writing. We look forward to more events in the spring.

The Birnbaum Library Faculty Talks Series this semester features Environmental Studies and Science Prof. Melanie Dupuis reading from her book Dangerous Digestion: The Politics of American Dietary Advice on Tuesday, November 15 at 10:30 AM; and Women’s and Gender Studies Prof. Emily Bent discussing her research on girls’ activism through social media on Wednesday, December 7 at 12:10 PM. Join us for both events in the Birnbaum Library Fishbowl.
In response to students’ desire for more 24-hour spaces on campus, the Birnbaum Library is pleased to announce that the Library Fishbowl is now open 24 hours. Stay tuned, as we hope to make a similar announcement about the Birnbaum Library Setters Lounge soon.
