While there could only be one winner, thanks to your input, the library will be able to evaluate our programs and better meet your needs. The results will directly inform an Environmental Scan of the library's Educational Services (research, instruction, reference) and help us develop an Assessment Plan. This is a long-term project so changes won't happen overnight. But we do value your input and will take your answers and comments seriously.

Thank you again! Your library loves you.

Prof. Matt Delmont, American Studies, Scripps | Thurs., Nov. 8, 4:30 PM, Founders Room

From a small studio in 1950s Philadelphia, American Bandstand became the first national television program directed at teenagers. The show brought rock and roll into American living rooms, shaped the way a generation danced and dressed, and became the defining image of teenage culture for millions of viewers. At the same time, however, American Bandstand's racially discriminatory admissions policies prompted protests from civil rights advocates and sparked a decades long controversy over how the show should be remembered. Professor Delmont's lecture will draw from his recent book, The Nicest Kids in Town: American Bandstand, Rock 'n' Roll, and the Struggle for Civil Rights in 1950s Philadelphia (University of California Press, 2012).
