In keeping with the 2009 National Library Week theme, “Worlds Connect @ Your Library,” the Temple Law School Library held the Carnivale di Venezia Friday, April 24, with its own theme of Unmasking Legal Research.

Held on the third floor library lobby, the festivities featured a mask ball.  The space was converted into a mini Venetian Republic with rafters festooned with the Venetian colors of red and gold and gondola poles of red and white.  Replicas of familiar Venetian sights and a gondola silhouette completed the scene.  Venetian snacks, cicetti, and non-alcoholic bellinis were served.  A violinist and cellist playing Italian airs added to the ambiance.  A digital slide show of the sights of Venice, using photos from a staff member’s  personal collection, entertained attendees.
