Baylor University's Armstrong Browning Library will host Benefactors Day at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17, in the McLean Foyer of Meditation and Hankamer Treasure Room at Armstrong Browning Library on the Baylor Campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is held each year to show the library's gratitude to donors and Guardian Angels, a Program named after Robert Browning's poem, "The Guardian Angel." Funds from the membership fees of this program allow the library to continue the collection that is used by Browning Scholars around the world.

The afternoon program will begin with music provided by mezzo-soprano Debra Scroggins. Scroggins has sung extensively throughout Europe and the United States, including concerts with the English Chamber Orchestra, the Dallas, Kansas City and Mississippi symphony orchestras. Scroggins will be accompanied by piano and cellos on Wednesday.

Following Scroggins, the keynotes speaker, Mariana Oller will present a lecture on the Browning Collection at Wellesley College. Oller is the research and instruction specialist for the Special Collection at the Wellesley College Library.

Refreshments will be served following the lecture in the Cox Lecture Hall.

For more information call the library at 254-710-3566.
