Attention alumni, students and faculty! Milne Library proudly unveils the Friends of Milne Library website to our friends and community members.

New features include a brand new “look”, easier navigation, beautiful graphics and lots of photos, updates and member information!

On Wednesday, November 28th, Milne Library hosted Recreate the Galaxy, an event featuring poetry readings and dance performances showcasing the creative and artistic talents of Geneseo students from all different academic disciplines. Dr. Leah Garland (SOTA) was the Master of Ceremonies and Jeanette Molina (Director of Dual-Degree Programs), Dr. Cristina Rowley (Foreign Languages) and Rich Dreifuss (Milne Library) presided as judges. Recreate the Galaxy was an event sponsored in conjunction with the heavens above: photographs of the universe from the Hubble Space Telescope special exhibit. Winners of the competition were students Nathan Lauffenburger (Physics), Charles Shickley (Mathematics) and Garrett Jones (Computer Science). The trio’s entry was The dark in my heart: 51 haikus, a series of haiku poems read by the students. Congratulations Nathan, Charles and Garrett! For more information, visit the Heavens Above website.
An exerpt from The dark in my heart: 51 haikus:
The dark in my heart
Opens up memories, dust
Closure of my space
A hohmann transfer
To the orbit from beyond
Into tandem thus
