Around the World in 80 Days

The 2019 Open House took place on January 8 and celebrated Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days. The Innovative Learning Studio was converted into a traveler’s lounge, world flags lined the library atrium, and a DJ from KGLT, MSU's campus radio station, spun world tunes. It was a great chance to explore other cultures and contemplate one’s place in an increasingly connected world. 17 campus partners, including six first-time partners, and eight library departments participated in the Open House.
