The Libraries provided students with colorful markers and blank bookmarks, and asked them to write how the Libraries have helped them with their research. The most popular comments highlighted the Libraries research resources, including subject librarians, study space, and friendly and knowledgeable library staff (especially Judy at the Information Desk). Check-out the colorful drawings and comments that students left at Student Bookmarks.
In honor of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Hockey in Broome County (2005) is Special Collections’ Featured Book for May 2013. The Binghamton Senators, AHL-affiliate and farm team for the Ottawa Senators, may not have gotten far in the Caldor Cup playoffs but you can still read all about Broome County hockey in this book!
Written by Marvin A. Cohen and Michael J. McCann and part of our Local History Collection, this book covers hockey in our county from the Broome Dusters through the Binghamton Senators. An exhibition game attended by 4,620 fans played in the new Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in September of 1973 followed by a newly formed Broome Dusters team of the North American Hockey League started a love affair with hockey in Broome County.
The Dusters were followed by the Binghamton Whalers (AHL), the Binghamton Rangers (AHL), the B.C. Icemen (IHL), and, currently the Binghamton Senators (AHL). Hockey in Broome County follows this history with more than 200 photographs and engaging text. Relive the heroics of the Dusters’ Rod Bloomfield, “the little guy that everyone picked on.” Then skip ahead to the crowd-pleasing toughness of the Whalers’ Randy MacGregor and the more recent brilliance of the Senators’ Jason Spezza.
To see Hockey in Broome County (the book version of course!), visit Special Collections located on the second floor of the Glenn G. Bartle Library.
