Students show up for Alkek 25th anniversary event

The quad was packed Tuesday morning for the celebratory kick-off of Alkek's 25 year anniversary of establishment.
Book-it-Brigade involved the formation of a “human chain” consisting of students, faculty and alumni that spanned from the plaza of Old Main to the top steps of Alkek Library. 
The event was a reenactment of an event in 1990 that honored the “symbolic move” of the library collection from JC Kellam (JCK) to Alkek on the library’s completion day, said Joan Heath, university librarian. On the day of the original event, books were passed along the human chain which extended from the third floor of JCK to the top steps of the collection’s new permanent home.
