Cruzen-Murray Book Brigade to echo history on Feb. 15

February 08, 2018

In 1967, a group of students gathered to form a line across The College of Idaho campus, stretching from what is now Strahorn Hall all the way to the N.L. Terteling Library, passing books one by one to what was then the College’s newest library.

Fifty-one years after that historic event, the College will once again gather to recreate that historic scene. At 5 p.m. on Feb. 15, the College’s Alumni Relations team will hold a new “Book Brigade” event to officially complete the transfer of library books from the Terteling Library to the recently opened Cruzen-Murray Library, which opened its doors on Jan. 31 after almost two years of construction.
