William T. Jerome Library 35th Anniversary Reception

On March 22, 2002, friends, guests, and staff members of BGSU Libraries celebrated the 35th anniversary of the William T. Jerome Library and initiated the Libraries' Centennial Campaign 2002-2009.

A special unveiling of the new donor gift tree marked the first phase of the Libraries' Centennial Campaign.

Terry Ryan, acclaimed author of The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio : How My Mother Raised 10 Kids on 25 Words or Less, captivated the audience with her homespun stories as special guest speaker for the event.  

Guests enjoyed reading the names of donors engraved on the leaves of the donor gift tree.
Terry Ryan signed copies of her book following the program.
