A Word From Owen Mendelaar '23
I joined the archives, and the library, out of my love for history and learning.  Archives in particular hold a special place in libraries for their preservation of knowledge and history from many years ago  I joined the archives last term to learn about how they are organized and run, and I learned all that, but also more.  I learned about the history of COA, from the people who run it, to the students that learn here, and it was a great joy to learn about their passions, and why they viewed COA in the way that they did.  I also got to learn about  all the cool little things that Hannah hides away in the rolling shelves of the archives, so if you ever get the chance, ask her about them.

Reading & Event
Fri May 27, 7pm in the Reading Rm
Join Sarah Cyr in welcoming her senior project, Naming the World, to publication! Naming the World is a memoir composed of essays and sonnets that re-member challenging memories until they are no longer painful and that rediscover the power of the self. There will be a reading of select work, with a Q&A. But that’s not all! Patrons who buy a copy of Naming the World will be able to hand sew the manuscript together, completing the journey of publication! 
Senior Project Displays
Monsters in the Library
By Sophie Schobert
Weeks 8 & 9 thoughout the Library

There is a monster party in the library! Starting week 8 and going into week 9, you can come up and visit these funky creatures. Sophie Schobert will be  displaying these monster drawings in combination with releasing their Monster Manifesto, which is a multi-medium art manifesto about their art practice of drawing monsters and what it has taught them that they can teach to others. The manifesto will be coming soon to a community email near you, but until then keep your eyes peeled for the monster mobs around the library.
The Tarot
By Westly Reason
May 24 - 27 In the Library Stacks
(by the soft chair on the ocean side)
The Tarot is many things, but perhaps its most universal application is as an art form for asking questions. Over the last five months, Westly Reason '22 has delved into the history, interpretation, and illustrative process of constructing the Tarot and the meanings behind the 78 cards that make a complete deck. Now, Westley is thrilled to be able to share the deck they have designed with the community! Whether you have five minutes or a couple of hours, come explore Westly's interpretation of the Tarot as a tool for introspection and discussion and as a way to engage playfully with ourselves, each other, and art.
Senior Books!
Every year we ask the seniors to vote on books to add to our collection. Here are the ones which won this year!  They are all on display in the library reading room if you want to explore them in person.

From The Archives:
Roc Caivano (1944 - 2021)

Roc Caivano taught sustainable design at COA for many years and designed many of the buildings on campus. In our digital archives we have some of the drawings he did for the Blair/Tyson student housing as well as other building plans he did for the school. In the COA 50th anniversary magazine released this Spring there is a wonderful In Memoriam about Roc written by John Gordon that we suggest you read. If you are looking for more of his architectural drawings, check out our Digital Archives.
