Each year we note with admiration that many units of The Library slip into a new look on or about October 31.
The Doe Centennial Celebration Committee offers prizes to any library employee and workplace for the Halloween costume(s) or workplace decoration(s) that best captures the spirit needed for a new century of vibrant libraries at Cal.
Send to the Committee photos or videos of people and places that make up this year?s celebrations. Get your images in by midnight November 1 for judging Wednesday November 2. Email individual images as attachments or, if you?d rather put them up your own site, send that link to gford (a) library.berkeley.edu by midnight November 1.
