HCL Hosts Library Open Houses

November 15, 2005 — Over the past few weeks, Harvard College Library marked three notable events with celebrations that ranged from sedate to surreal: Lamont's transition to a 24/5 schedule and the openings of the Quad and Fung libraries. We'll begin with the surreal . . .

Lamont 24/5 Celebration

Hosted in conjunction with the Undergraduate Council (UC), the Lamont 24/5 Celebration, held on a Monday night from midnight to 1:00 am, drew almost 2,000 students--1900 more than were expected! The UC dubbed the event "Harvard's best ever Monday night party."

Felipe's Mexican eats and Finale's desserts were a definite hit. Students couldn't get enough. Quesadilla passing became a new Harvard pasttime overnight.
