University

Dedication Service Marks Renaming of Library

September 11, 2007

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.

    Thanksgiving Break (office closed)A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. (Psalm 100, KJV)
