An Evening with Naismith and KU Libraries |

Our ‘Hawk Days of Summer tour this summer includes a partnership with our friends at the KU Libraries. The library provides so much more than just a place to check out a book or study; they offer a lot of educational programming that appeals to Jayhawks and helps enhance our own programs.

The first joint event this summer is An Evening with Naismith: Artifacts of a KU Legend. KU basketball fans will enjoy the opportunity to view and hold artifacts from KU’s University Archives that relate to the life and legacy of James Naismith, KU’s first basketball coach and inventor of the game.

Alumni in Denver, Houston and Dallas are invited to join us for hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and an evening of KU camaraderie. The cost for each event is $15; current or incoming students can attend at no cost. We encourage you to bring potential Jayhawks to these events!

Also coming up: events that focus on KU Libraries’ rich jazz collection, including one of the largest sound archives west of the Mississippi. Stay tuned for more details about these events in Chicago, Omaha and St. Louis!
