National Library Week

The Alexandria Campus Library celebrated National Library Week (April 13 - 19) with baloons, cookies, lemondade, and student feedback.

200 cookies were served on the afternoon of Wed 16 April (works out to 50 cookies per hour!) along with lemonade.
Students were also asked to contribute to a book detailing their favorite things about the Library. Faves included the large windows, the plants, the staff (aww, thanks!), computers, that resources are FREE and "books, books, books". One kind contributor wrote "Librarians ROCK!"

(thanks -- we hope so!).

Library Staff also recommended their favorite books:
