Helmke Library will host its annual Library Open House on September 13 and 14 from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. The Library Open House provides an opportunity for Purdue Fort Wayne students, faculty, and staff to learn more about the services and resources available to support their research and creative endeavors. The event is a partnership between multiple offices and organizations that are housed within the library.
Stop by the library and check in at the welcome desk located on the first floor, where you can obtain a bingo sheet, and then explore the library. Each participating library partner will have a representative available in their office or space to explain to attendees what services and resources that group offers the PFW community and stamp their bingo card. Attendees that visit all participating partners and fill their bingo card will be eligible for a prize drawing on September 14 at 3 p.m.
