Last February I received an unusual phone call. "What would you think about a group of students spending the night at the library?" asked Dr. Jeff Stafford, associate dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Eastern Washington University. "Tell me more," I replied. Shortly thereafter, I received a written proposal from Patricia Wahler, the community advisor (CA) for a student living learning community (LLC) at Morrison Hall at Eastern Washington University. Library Lights Out was Wahler's idea. "The Living Learning Communities of Morrison Hall would like an opportunity to utilize the Eastern Washington University library for a community-building program while incorporating educational aspects over the course of a Friday night," her proposal began.
