Kelly Library and the University of St. Michael’s College community on Thursday, March 21, 2024, at 6 p.m. for an evening lecture and reception as we celebrate the reopening of the Kelly Library’s Print Studio. We will mark the occasion with a guest lecture by Professor Angela Esterhammer and with printing demonstration by Kit MacNeil, Printer at Massey College and current guest lecturer in St. Mike’s Book and Media Studies program.

Through the generous support of the Friends of the Kelly Library and the USMC Office of the Principal, the Print Studio has been expanded and is now ready to host all manner of students interested in learning about the book arts.
