Library Science Students Return 50 Years Later!


Four library science graduates of the Kutztown State College Class of 1964 and one member of the Class of 1967 came to KU last week for a tour and a stroll down memory lane. Barbara Bollinger, Susan Ziegenfus, Kathryn Schaeffer, Karen Waldron, and Ann Hohe visited KU on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.

(The image was retrieved from our digitized postcard collection available here.) KU librarian Susan Czerny gave the ladies a tour of Rohrbach and pulled items from our archives for them to look at and enjoy during their visit. Items included old yearbooks, photos, and other print materials from the their years at Kutztown. The pictures below show the ladies enjoying and sharing what they found in the materials. They had fun on their visit, and we would welcome them back any time.

Kutztown University is preparing to celebrate 150 years in 2016. As we lead up to that celebration, we will post more information about the wonderful items located in our archives. If you have any photos or memorabilia that you would like to donate to the archives from your time or a family member’s time at Kutztown (whether it be from the Normal School, State Teacher’s College or University years), please contact Susan Czerny (610-683-4174) for more information.
