April 9th thru 15th is National Library Week!
From the American Library Association (ALA) website:
National Library Week (April 9 – 15, 2017) is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to library business centers that help support entrepreneurship and retraining, libraries offer opportunity to all. The theme for 2017 National Library Week is “Libraries Transform.” Olympic soccer gold medalist and World Cup champion Julie Foudy will serve as this year’s National Library Week Honorary Chair.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate every year in National Library Week.

Uzumaki is the featured book for January. It is Manga, but also horror. This combination should make for an interesting read. It will only be on display one more week. Come by and view the facts and artifacts associated with it!

You may have noticed that the Library has some special helpers for you during finals week. Well, they’re the same people you see each day, but now they’re here evenings! The Finals Helpers are stationed on the 3rd floor, with pencils, pens, paper pads, and sometimes – candy! Helpers are available two more days – Tuesday and Wednesday (December 13 & 14) from 7pm to midnight!
Our goal is to be available to help you at a moments notice! So feel free to stop by the table to pick ups supplies, ask questions, or just to say hello!
