An Influential Life — John Muir Event


The David A. Cofrin Library invites you to enjoy an evening of mini-lectures on the impact John Muir made on history, ecology, psychology and conservation. UW-Green Bay faculty and staff will deliver mini-lectures that will lead attendees into a larger conversation about the importance of Muir’s legacy. Take part in the discussion and enjoy light refreshments on Thursday, November 30th 2017 from 7pm-8:30pm on the 4th floor of the library.

The event is in conjunction with the traveling exhibit “Wisconsin’s John Muir.” The exhibit will be at the David A. Cofrin Library on the 4th floor, and open to the public, November 15 to December 15, 2017.

The Library is turning 40!

Help the Cofrin Library celebrate 40 years of service with our very first Edible Book Festival!  On Monday February 27th from 12-2 PM we will host a very unusual book display on the library’s 3rd floor- all of the books will be completely edible.  You can participate by entering your own book creation or by stopping by the library to fill out a ballot and taste the books.  For more information or to register check out

Art 106 Chairs

On display in Cofrin Library, 3rd floor: Come see cardboard chairs constructed by students in Prof. Mindy Wittock’s Art 106 Design Methods class.

Each chair was designed by a group of students with the criteria that it may only be made of 10 or less sheets of cardboard, they could only use craft/fabric glue for adhesive, and it must support a human being.

Students also spent time researching in the library and attended information literacy sessions with the librarians.
