Since 2005, Love Your Library Fest (LYLF) is the HLS Library’s annual welcome event for new and returning students. In stations spread throughout the building, students learn about library services they will love, get a glimpse of treasures from HLS and legal history, give feedback to help us improve their student experience, meet information vendors, and find out about the latest projects from the Library Innovation Lab. All this happens in a fun, informal atmosphere with candy and prizes that prompted a student in 2015 to observe “I can’t believe this is Harvard Law School!”
The t-shirt shown here was worn by Library staff at the very first LYLF. A new red shirt was introduced in 2006 featuring a large question mark on the back with the text “Ask US,” and the red shirt was revised again after the HLS shield retirement in 2016.
