The Cup Library at Hutchins Library

by Amanda Peach on 2019-09-02T11:13:00-04:00 | Comments

Hutchins Library is excited to announce our recent addition of a circulating cup library. We would like to invite students, faculty, and staff to attend our open house, next Tuesday, Sept. 10th, from 5-9pm. Drop-in anytime during the event and enjoy live music and refreshments before checking out a cup of your own. 

After checking out your cup, we invite you to share photos of you enjoying it on social media. That’s right: we want to see you drink your lattes and slurp your ramen out of our cups! Use the hashtag: #CupLibraryHutchins, make your image visible to the public, and at the end of September, there will be a drawing for a gift card to Native Bagel from within those hashtag users. 


Frequently asked questions about the Cup Library:

1. Where is the cup library?

The cup library is located on the main floor of Hutchins, to the right of the Circulation Desk

2. How long can I check out a cup?

Cups are checked out for one semester at a time. 

3. What happens if I break a cup?

Accidents happen. If you break your cup, you must bring all of the pieces back to the library and you will not be charged for it.

4. What is the point of the cup library?

Art is not just something to be studied at a distance, but rather to be experienced. When you are sipping your morning coffee from one of these handcrafted cups, you understand what it means to use art in your everyday life.
