This week many Pokemon trainers have gathered on shaded benches to challenge the reigning team of the Willis Library Pokemon Gym. At the helm of this part of the Library Mall is a well-loved statue, The Sustaining Arch. In 2004 the UNT Student Government Association commissioned UNT Alumnus Jonathan Snow to create the archway of cast-bronze books. It serves as a tribute to students, alumni, faculty, and staff our campus community has lost over the years. The significance of this location inspired the UNT Willis Library Spirit Badge. After battling at the Willis Library Pokemon Gym, stop by the Willis Library Services Desk, Media Library Service Desk, or Eagle Commons Library Service Desk to pick up a Spirit Badge to mark your progress on your Pokemon journey. Badges available while supplies last.
