Kathryn A. Martin Library Student Video Contest

In 2007-08 and 2008-09, the Library sponsored a student video contest, where students submitted videos that were set in the Library or about the Library. In 2009-10, this contest became a part of the student-run Frozen Yeti Film Festival.

Our students have found many creative ways of interpreting the Library and using it as a setting for their films. We have a creative bunch and offer them our thanks for showing off our library while we show off their work.
