Accordion Books in Process
The Teti Library recently collaborated with NHIA’s First Year Experience class to create one-of-a-kind books. Students from the class designed the pages and the staff at the library assembled the works into accordion style books. The books will be exhibited at NHIA’s Fuller Hall Foyer on Monday, December 2nd and will be celebrated with a reception open to all. Join us as we recognize the efforts of our new students!
