Collaboration and Community: Our Favorite Two-Point Play

As busy as every TWU Libraries staff member is working for the benefit of the TWU community, we particularly enjoy opportunities that afford us not only collaboration with our peers but also a reminder that each one of us is part of a larger community—the Texas Woman’s University community. 

Several TWU Libraries staff members (Roxsand Beckles, Sandy Cochran, Jimmie Lyn Harris, Ryan Hay, Erik Martin, Nadia Nealy, Sean Spear, Johnathan Wilson and Kristin Wolski) designed, built and submitted an entry on behalf of the libraries for the recent Pack the House II Build Your Own Snowman Contest sponsored by the Departments of University Housing and Athletics. Contestants competed in one of two categories--student group and university department--as part of Pack the House II, an initiative to encourage attendance at Pioneers basketball games.

The winners in both categories were announced at the Pioneers basketball game on Wednesday, January 16, 2013.  The first-place winner in the student group category was the Kinesiology Club, while the TWU Libraries took first-place honors in the university department category.  Commenting on Huey (as our favorite "snowbrarian" has affectionately come to be known), Joe Berthiaume, Director of University Housing and one of the judges of the competition, “was impressed by the creativity, thought and work (the library snowman team) displayed.”  Photo:  Huey, the TWU Libraries’ winning entry in the Pack the House II Build Your Own Snowman Contest, peers out from the basketball court in Pioneer Hall.  January 16, 2013.  Photograph by Sean Spear.

Plans are in the works for Huey to have a temporary home on the first floor of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus of TWU.  He--and the rest of the library staff--would love for you to visit.
Collaboration and community--the TWU Libraries' favorite two-point play.
