Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 2:45pm - 3:30pm
In the last ten years, the relationship between the town and the college has vastly improved as a result of the collegeâ€™s financial support of recent community initiatives.Â This economic interaction is mutually beneficial for both parties, but it is yet to be fully developed and formalized.Â In addition, Economics majors at the college rarely get a chance to experience theory in action.Â The Economics Library will serve as a point of convergence for the college and the town in order to encourage this conversation and provide practical experience for students.Â Located on a central site next to Bakery Lane, the library will provide a venue for Economics students to incorporate their curriculum into the local economy as well as provide educational opportunities for the public.
