A gift in memory of a former librarian and professor has allowed the Ruth Ann Musick Library to provide enhanced services to the students of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College.
Although Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” was first published in 1818 when she was 21, the novel’s content remains relevant to audiences today. For that reason, “Frankenstein” has been chosen as the Common Reader for the 2012-2013 academic year at Fairmont State University. The project will be complemented by a Frankenstein Film Festival and other events throughout the year.
Welcome Weekend for new students at Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College begins on Thursday, Aug. 16. The program is designed to provide incoming freshmen with the information they need to start their college experience moving in the right direction. Classes for the fall 2012 semester begin Monday, Aug. 20 (Saturday classes begin on Saturday, Aug. 18).
“SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”… “You can’t bring that food in here.”… “We only have reference material.”
From the musky smell, to the hair buns, cardigans and complete silence, libraries bring to mind very distinct images and experiences. The staff members of the Ruth Ann Musick Library on the shared main campus of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College have broken that mold, making the library a place for everyone.
Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College students will ultimately benefit from $18.7 million for building renovation projects through bonds funded using West Virginia Lottery revenue.
