It just might be the most visited place on campus. It's the William and Anita Newman Library, which welcomed its 10-millionth visitor on Feb. 3. (The library opened its doors in fall 1994.) The lucky 10-millionth visitor, Sandra Younger, a part-time undergraduate, received a $1,000 gift certificate to the College bookstore. Other winners included five students who aced the Newman Library Trivia Quiz, each netting an Apple iPhone. The celebration was the culmination of a many-week countdown. "We are particularly proud of the 10-Millionth Visitor Countdown," said Professor Arthur Downing, head librarian and the College's chief information officer, "because it is a celebration of how the library, as a place, plays a central role in student life." All attendees of the official party on Feb. 8 were treated to festive cupcakes.
