Recent visitors to the Burke may have noticed something new on the first floor. This week, thanks to the generosity of the friends and family of Seth E. Kasten, a new exhibit case has been installed on the first floor, just opposite the circulation desk. Seth was a librarian at the Burke Library at Union Theological Seminary from 1973 to 2011 and this case will stand as a testimony to his many years of dedicated service to the Burke’s communities and collections. Seth helped countless individuals from near and far in their research and study and led choral groups at Union and at the annual conference of the American Theological Library Association.
We are deeply grateful to the Seth’s friends and family for this gift to the Burke Library in his memory. We are planning an opening event for the spring and an exhibit that will pay tribute to Seth’s passion for music — stay tuned!
