LSU Libraries Hosts Visit from First Grade Students

Posted in Announcements

On April 23, Andrea Hebert (General Librarian), Robert Bigelow (Library Associate), and Mitch Fontenot (Outreach Librarian) met with 100 first grade students, teachers, parents, and tour guides of Teach for America in New Orleans and Kipp Central City Academy. As part of a day field trip to the LSU campus, these visitors toured Middleton Library and specifically the Education Resources Library, which serves students pursuing degrees in education.

First graders visit LSU Libraries

Kipp Central City Academy is a charter school in the Bywater section of New Orleans that focuses on college preparation for students who would be the first in their families to attend college. The students toured the specialized education collection and got to read books specifically for their age group. They were amazed to learn that the library has more than 3 million books, 5 floors, 1 million visits per year, and serves 30,000 students. They expressed appreciation for the tour and a desire to return in the future, and then went on to see Mike the Tiger.

Paul Hrycaj is a Research & Instruction Librarian at the LSU Libraries.

These students, shown here in the machine shop in 1903, are using a bench grinder and lathes. At right is a drill press. All of the power tools were driven by a series of belts and pulleys from a central stationary engine located elsewhere in the machine shop.
