Come on into the John C. Hitt Library on Saturday from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. By the 7.00 p.m. kickoff at Bright House Stadium you will feel a genuine sense of accomplishment for all the research, reading, writing and reflection you have completed at the library. We won’t mind if you leave a bit early to swing by a tailgate or two. When you’re here, you can look in any of hundreds of resources to find out exactly what a terrapin is.
