The Family Room is currently featuring an art installation by Union alumnus Katherine Crutcher Motta. The pieces combine bright colors and unique typography with quotes from famous children’s books. The artwork will be on loan for the Spring 2016 semester.
Most of the artwork is available for purchase; please see Janice Baumgardner (Room 107) or Melissa Moore (Room 105) for pricing and availability. Katherine Crutcher Motta also has an Etsy shop and takes custom orders. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The library’s Recording Studio, located on the third floor, is now available for reservations.
With seating for five, the studio is a space that will allow current Union students, faculty, and staff the ability to make audio recordings. The studio is lined with sound-dampening acoustic treatment and contains professional audio equipment for the user to make high quality sound recordings. Possible uses for the studio include the recording of voice-overs, narrations, podcasts, and the digitizing of analog media.
Please note, this is not a live music recording studio and, therefore, musical instrument recording and singing recording are prohibited. The studio is available to all current Union students, faculty, and staff on a reservation only basis and will be open Monday-Thursdays 8:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m., Fridays 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Saturdays Noon-4:00 p.m., and closed on Sundays.
