The Henry Madden Library Graduating Students Selections honors the essential contribution student assistants make to the library during their time at Fresno State. Their hard work and dedication make this library a better place – especially this year. Typically the largest employer of students on campus, the library could not function without their work.
Upon graduation, student assistants select a book that is meaningful to them, and the book is given a digital bookplate in their honor. Even long after graduation, students will always be able to search their name in our catalog and find their digital book plate, a reminder of their time in the library and as a Fresno State Bulldog.
Library graduating student assistants are also gifted Henry Madden Library stoles to honor their contributions to the Library during their employment here. It is with heartfelt thanks and bittersweet feelings that we wish our 2021 student assistant graduates well in their endeavors!
