Come Together and Celebrate @ Bailey Library

It is National Library Week and Bailey Library is celebrating in grand style. Here are some activities that you can participate in to help us celebrate...

Celebrate The Beatles @ Bailey Library
Tuesday, April 17

Dr. Todd Pfannestiel will present on the infamous “Paul is Dead” hoax. Did Paul McCartney die in a car crash in 1967? Was he replaced by a look-alike? Dr. Pfannestiel will discuss Beatles album art and play backward-masked music as you learn about how pop culture can create a sociological phenomenon. “Lla rof deetnaraug si emit doog A!” This is a brown bag lunch event, with Bailey Library providing dessert and coffee.

Bailey Library will present a Beatles documentary starting at 7:00 followed by a Beatles movie, A Hard Days Night. This event will be Special Collections off of the second floor lobby. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Everyone present will be entered in drawing to win the copy of A Hard Days Night.
