Dedication Service Marks Renaming of Library

Olivet University celebrated the official renaming of University library to the Ralph D. Winter Library on September 10, 2007 with a dedication service held in the library facilities of the main campus building immediately after the Fall Convocation ceremony.

Following a presentation that included a video tour of the main, language, and college libraries, University Chancellor Dr. David Jang expressed gratitude on behalf of the University community to the library’s namesake Dr. Winter, who was in attendance with his wife Mrs. Barbara Winter. He explained about founding vision for the newly named library to as a world-premier repository for academic and theological resources in multiple formats and languages in service for world mission. 

The dedication service also included a gift presentation of a special plaque in honor of the occasion and flower bouquet, after which Dr. Winter gave remarks. 

A ribbon-cutting ceremony with Dr. and Mrs. Winter and University leaders concluded the event.
