Hale of a time event

About the Event

In 2017, the Friends of the K-State Libraries held a brand new celebration, Hale of a Time! Guests moved from floor to floor in Hale Library to enjoy unique food and drinks at stations that represented our past, present and future. Entertainment included a virtual reality tour of our first floor modernization plan, a live performance by Wayne Goins and Susan Hancock and more. This delicious, eclectic event was a night for the books!
