Stop by Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, visit our welcome table in the lobby, and we'll point you to stations throughout the library where you can discover resources you can use year-round. Learn how to find a book in the stacks, explore the website, visit key spaces, and more! You can also take a self-guided tour to familiarize yourself with the library at your own pace.

This event also kicks off our semester-long passport program, Fall For the Penn Libraries. Pick up a passport during this event and start collecting stamps and selfies as you visit library locations across campus throughout the semester. If you complete at least 10 passport activities by November 10, you’ll receive a limited-edition travel tote that you can even personalize in the Education Commons!
