April 8-14 was National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren’t just places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions.
Libraries of all types have long been evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Diverse groups including small business owners and students depend upon libraries and the resources they offer. Resources like e-books and technology workshops are just a few ways libraries and librarians are transforming to lead their communities.
We celebrated National Library Week with:
Faculty Book Day: Faculty members were able to discuss their latest publications.
Take Action for Libraries: Students, Faculty, and Staff had the opportunity to ask their local representatives to fund libraries.
Open Mic: Students, Faculty, and Staff had the opportunity to share their original works or read/sing their favorite works.
Blind date with a book, don’t judge a book by its cover: was a mystery book, wrapped in brown paper, tagged with clues about the book.
