Baby Boom

By Katy Kelly and Maureen Schlangen

Students weren’t the only ones up all night during the 2017-18 academic year. Five people working in the University Libraries have welcomed newborns since August — a bit of a baby boom.

Two of the tots are already pals and “classmates” at the same daycare, and another, having developed an early appreciation for shelves, may have a future in books.

We had a gathering of the library baby boomers and learned a bit more about this cohort of future Flyers. Welcome to the Flyer family Miles, Philip, Desi, Emilio and Catherine!
