Congressman John Shimkus' lifetime of service, achievements and leadership still impact our community and country today. Last year, Congressman Shimkus and his family donated the former U.S. representative's official Congressional collection to SIUE. The University and Lovejoy Library are honored to curate and steward this collection.

Mark your calendars and join us on the first floor of Lovejoy Library on Monday, November 15 at 6:15 p.m. as we celebrate this great addition with a reception followed by an interview with Congressman Shimkus at 7 p.m. CST.

There are two ways to participate in this event.

  • Attend in-person and enjoy refreshments with Congressman Shimkus, SIUE students and others
