During National Library Week, we had a “Search for the Holy Grail” Treasure Hunt every day and invited everyone to participate.
Here’s the winners and the “Holy Grail” treasure they found:
Student Workers modelling the new Ireland Library T-Shirt
- Brandon Wanless was the first to find Tuesday’s Holy Grail: John Henry Newman’s book, The Difficulties with Anglicans.
- Christian Washburn was the first to find Wednesday’s Holy Grail in the 2012 Catholic Almanac in the Reference Room.
- Kelsey Willits was the first to find Thursday’s Holy Grail, an Latin-English edition of the Code of Canon Law.
- Brandon Wanless was the first to find Friday’s Holy Grail, Chevalier’s Repertoire des sources historiques du moyen âge in the Oversize Collection.
These winners recieved $5 on their Express card.
At the end of Library Week, we had a drawing for this year’s Ireland Library T-shirt of all the people who found the Holy Grail. The winner of the Grand Prize is Kelsey Willits.
All 10 items on the Silent Auction found new homes. Over $300 was raised for adding new books to Ireland Library collections.
Library Week began with two full tables of used theology books. Now it’s down to one and all of them are free. Come and grab some titles to fill in your bookshelves.
Thanks to everyone who visited Ireland Library and made National Library Week great. The used theology book sale, silent auction and “Search for the Holy Grail” Treasure Hunt were a success!
