Thursday afternoon has become a highly anticipated time of the week at Candler. From 2:00 – 3:00 pm on Thursdays from September 15 – November 17, the library will be holding the Thursday Honors event: a coffee and refreshment break for all library patrons. Funding for the event is provided each week by donors, who choose to honor individuals or groups from the community. Past honorees have included Candler staff members, student groups, and alumni. Honorees’ photos are featured on the welcome screen at the library entrance throughout the week.
The response to the event has been overwhelmingly positive, and the Pitts staff is excited about continuing to provide and develop this weekly opportunity for recognition, conversation, and refreshment. To sponsor a Thursday Honors event, please contact Rebekah Bedard at rebekah [dot] bedard [at] emory [dot] edu.
