Maharishi University of Management Library will soon upgrade its study carrels to 35 like-new, solid wood designer furniture. Dr. Suzanne Araas Vesely, the outgoing library director, was able to arrange the beautiful furniture, courtesy of Luther College, on the last day of her tenure. "I especially want to thank the student helpers and the drivers who quickly responded to this opportunity," says Suzanne. They included Wade Kernohan and Soren Pearson,who drove a van to Decorah to load the material with the kind help of Luther College library staff, and also the crew waiting when they returned: Jonathan Buzan, Mark Chavez, Ed Fudge, Dustin Garlow, and Boris Lukic, who also helped with bringing the van to and from U-Haul. They were enthusiastic about bringing these very nice pieces into the library. Thanks are also due to Edward Atwell, Public Services Coordinator, and Diane Gossman, Director of User Services for Luther College Library: they coordinated the transfer. Kudos also to the staff at Luther who helped to load the pieces.
