Olin Chalmers Library, home to vibrating cellphones and unceasingly noisy sophomores, has finally welcomed a silent contingency: new potted plants!
This afternoon, Sharon Franz, Kenyon grounds keeper extraordinaire, rolled a cart of plants through the library. As per request of the librarians, Franz placed the photosynthesizing newcomers on window ledges and tables as an effort to “brighten up” the library. The plants are to replace the 30 year old ficus trees previously stationed in the library.
Cool! Potted plants good, Beta pledges bad.
