- Libraries & Spaces
On Friday, March 6, Georgetown University is open with liberal leave due to inclement weather. The Lauinger Library building, Lauinger Circulation Desk and Gelardin New Media Center are open on time. The Woodstock Theological Library and Blommer Science Library will open as staff arrive.
The Library Associates once again partnered with the Georgetown Music Program to host the year’s opening Friday Music Series concert, “Big Band Era,” on Friday, September 20. This year’s concert featured Professor Aaron Broadus leading the Georgetown Jazz Ensemble in a rousing program of big band classics recalling the years when artists such as Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa performed for the student body.
The concert was followed by a reception in the Murray Room on the 5th floor of Lauinger Library and a viewing of the exhibition The Big Band Era at Georgetown in the Leon Robbin Gallery. The exhibition is open to the public whenever the Library is open, so stop by and check in out!
