Former student librarian visits the Museum

Mark Lewis standing with the very books for which he was appointed the librarian when they were housed in the Brooke Library that changed back to the Brooke Chapel in 1985.

What is now the Brooke Chapel once used to be a library - 1927 - 1985. As is the case today then students were librarians there. When Mark Lewis paid the ODU a visit earlier this week little did he know that he would be standing with the same books he remembers from that time.  The same time honoured leather-bound classics embossed in gold with the Bishops Crest. The photograph that is enclosed captured the magical moment.
