The December 2017 issue of College & Research Libraries News (C&RL News) features Libros y Libertad, art commissioned in 2008 for the Dayton Memorial Library. Created by Tony Ortega, associate professor, Fine and Performing Arts, Libros y Libertad is about place, with the Dayton Memorial Library at the center and two students reading, one male, one female, representing diversity and the student population. Another group of students is walking to class. The painting hangs behind the Research Help Desk.

Both covers are nicely timed in advance of the upcoming American Library Association midwinter meeting in Denver during February 2018.

Celebrating 50 years

March 17, 2017

Fifty years ago, March 17, 1967, the Dayton Memorial Library was dedicated. The library opened in 1966 and was named The Dayton Memorial Library in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Dayton. Mrs. Dayton’s bequest of $850,000 to the university vitalized a 3-year fund drive begun in 1962 by Fr. Ryan to build a science building and a library, and was the largest bequest at that time in the history of Regis. Archbishop Urban J. Vehr officiated at the dedication.
