Ithaca, NY (USA) -- Students and faculty will not be the only ones working in the Case Library and Geyer Center for Information Technology next week.

Two Tibetan monks from Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, N.Y., will be creating a sand mandala in the reading room on the library's third floor. (See this webcam to watch them work).

The monks will work Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. each day. Their visit will culminate with dissolution of the mandala into Taylor Lake Saturday morning.
