After a pandemic-induced hiatus, 2023 saw the return of Stanford Libraries' annual staff picnic. A lively group feasted on a lunch of tri-tip, chicken, and butternut squash ravioli along with salad, rice, broccolini, and an assortment of bite-sized desserts. For the first time, the picnic was located in Littlefield Courtyard, and the lush greenery and shade were greatly appreciated. Wayne Vanderkuil kindly took a new staff photo for us on the steps of the Lathrop Library. It was a much-needed chance for staff to take a break and enjoy chatting with their colleagues on a beautiful September day!
