4 Things to see at McGill Library before you graduate

Virtual convocation is here! While many of us are celebrating remotely, we’re still celebrating! Usually at this time of year, we jot down a list of Library activities to do with visiting family members. And this year will be no different. Well, a little different. Though the activities are virtual, know that near or far, we’re celebrating your amazing accomplishments right along with you.

The above video offers a leisurely tour through a selection of festive virtual activities guided by our best friend and mascot, SofiaCat. Born out of a staff idea for a Library cat named WorldCat, Sofia’s name reflects our current Library catalogue.

And if you happen to be on or near campus, don’t miss the opportunity to snap a pic as a newly minted #McGillAlumni with this frame installed on the McLennan-Redpath Terrace just for you. It will be there until July 4th. Félicitations!
