Drama Department Pop-Up Library
Amanda DuBose, Music and Performing Arts Librarian, is opening a Drama Department pop-up library on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 in the Storch Theater Lobby of the Syracuse Stage/Drama Theater Complex. The ribbon cutting for the new pop-up library will take place on January 17 at 5 p.m. in the Storch Theater, with a small reception and open hours held afterward in the lobby. The pop-up library is a specially selected, circulating collection of materials curated for drama students and faculty that will be accessible throughout the Spring 2024 semester on Mondays from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm and Wednesdays from 2 – 4 pm. Materials in the pop-up will be updated monthly and will also serve as a Library-to-Go location for drama faculty. The movable, lockable shelves that display the books, scores and other library materials was funded by two innovation grants, Central New York Library Resources Council (CLRC) and the Staff Innovation Fund, made possible through a generous donation by Libraries Advisory Board member Laurence G. Bousquet G’80.
“The Drama Department students and faculty find it difficult to get to the library on campus due to long rehearsals and their class schedule,” said Amanda DuBose. “This pop-up library is a point of service for this part of our campus population that may underutilize the resources available to them. We’re super excited to have this opportunity to provide drama students, faculty and staff with the physical resources and librarian expertise in a location that is convenient for them.”
