Friends of Reeves Library, a new support group, invites the campus community to a reception from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. today in the library’s Rare Books Room

Formation of the Friends group coincides with the 35th anniversary of the library’s opening and the 10th of completion of its wings.
At 5:00 p.m., there will be a short ceremony to thank Robert P.L. Frick ’49 for his longtime support and to dedicate the bookcase he commissioned from Duckloe Brothers for the Rare Books Room.
He gave the case, which matches one he donated several years ago, in honor of his friend and fellow student, the late Rev. Henry L. Williams ’48, who was the first librarian of Reeves. Frick’s other gifts have included a copy of Orbis Sensualium Picti (1746) by Comenius.

The reception also will be a chance to meet new library staff members Wendy Juniper, reference librarian, and John Weeren, college archivist.

Call or e-mail Rita Berk, library director, to respond to the invitation. Ext. 1540 or berkr@moravian.edu.
