National Library Week

Event: April 12 - 16, 2010

National Library Week was established in 1958 by the American Library Association and is celebrated each April by all types of libraries: school, public, academic and special. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians, and to promote library use and support.

National Library Week 2010 is celebrated with the theme "Communities thrive @ your library." Please join us April 12 - 16, 2010 for a week of festivities.

Food for Fines Drive
Monday - Friday

Do you have fines at the University Library? You can get them forgiven with a donation of canned food! The library will forgive $1.00 in fines for every canned food item brought to the circulation desk, up to $10.00 per library card. Canned food will be donated to the Brother Bryan mission. Does not apply to books placed in the book drop, lost books that have been billed, or processing fees.
