FREE pizza, craft root beer & mini golf in McIntyre Library on 1st day of class (9/3)

McIntyre Library is proud to host the 4th annual After Dark welcome-to-school celebration on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 from 7-11 pm. http://on.fb.me/14ZwGIx

What happens at After Dark?
After Dark will feature games, Toppers pizza, Northwoods Brew Pub's "Rustic Root Beer" and live entertainment. Library staff have designed a multi-floor, 9-hole miniature golf course that has water hazards and utilizes one of the stairwells. Students can also play a variety of board & video games and participate in Family Feud, Pictionary, Bingo, and life-size Clue. Prizes will be awarded throughout the night.  

Everything is completely free to UW-Eau Claire students, faculty & staff!

UW-Eau Claire student groups will provide live entertainment. Theater troupe the UWEC Players will pose as living statues, the Eau Claire Irish Dance will perform, and dance group Two to Tango will provide free ballroom dancing lessons.

Why is the library doing this?
After Dark encourages UW-Eau Claire students to get acquainted with the library and each other in a safe, fun atmosphere. About 800 students attended the 2012 event.

Support for After Dark has been provided by McIntyre Library, Toppers Pizza, Northwoods Brew Pub, the Center for Alcohol Studies and Education, and the Center for International Education.

Something's different on the Library website...

It is indeed. McIntyre Library is implementing its revolutionary new search tool, Library Search, a collaborative project of the UW System libraries. Library Search simultaneously searches library databases, the catalog and other UW System library collections at lightning speed. We appreciate your patience during this implementation phase; as we know at UW-Eau Claire, excellence is always under construction. Please contact the library if you have questions about the new Library Search. And be on the lookout for more information about this exciting new development in the days and weeks to come.
