ConnectED: A Penn State York First-Year Experience

The Lee R. Glatfelter Library offers a series of innovative programs each semester, open to everyone, providing Penn State York students meaningful opportunities to connect with other students, faculty, staff, and the community. We were fortunate this year to receive funding from the Penn State York Women's Philanthropic Network to offer a $2,018 award to the first-year student who earns the most points by attending our events and making connections with others!

Please visit the ConnectEd website for up-to-date information about all the events and activities, as well as the points first-year students receive for participating!

Read, Watch, and Listen

Faculty and staff of the Lee R. Glatfelter Library have developed, in consultation with the Laureate, a list of books and visual material that the community may find interesting and informative context for the talk. Interested community members can borrow the material from the library, where they are on reserve.

Dr. Champagne will speak about the film The Garden of the Finzi-Continis in his talk, so seeing the film in advance may make the presentation a richer experience. Community members are welcome to check the film out of the Lee R. Glatfelter Library and attend a film discussion in the library on Thursday, November 1 from 12:10-1:15 p.m.

STOP IN THE LIBRARY to view a display of artwork and books related to artist Corrado Cagli and to Dr. Champagne's interest in the role of the artist in times of political turmoil.
