Galvin Library would like to wish the Best of Luck and a sincere Congratulations to our student employees who will be graduating this spring. Some of them have worked with us for a few months, others for a few years, but we have enjoyed spending time with them and are sorry to see them go. Galvin Library could not do what we do without our student employees. We thank them for their hard work, dedication and good humor. All our best to you and Good Luck!
