Summer brings many visitors from near and far to UC Berkeley, especially the libraries. This week, 24 future Cal students — third graders from Oakland’s Northern Light School, accompanied by Ricardo Huerta Niño (M.C.P. ‘09, PhD City & Regional Planning ‘13) — spent the day on campus visiting the Campanile, the campus’s own T-Rex and Haas Pavilion (Go Bears!).
But the highlight of their day must surely have been their visit to the Environmental Design Library where librarian David Eifler introduced them to his collection of pop-up and artists’ books, gave the young scholars an opportunity to select items from the collection and showed off the library’s sculptural furniture.
