Today is National Library Outreach Day!
Q: How do Academic Libraries provide outreach?
A: One important way is to provide resources to our users where they are, which is not always in the library building. We strive to provide quality online resources so our users can do their research from home, their dorm, in another country while on an exchange program, late at night while the library building is closed but our online resources stay available 24/7, and the list goes on.
Our library is here to meet your information needs.
April 5, 2022 is National Library Workers Day! To celebrate and show appreciation for library workers and the work they do throughout the year, library users are invited to “Submit a Star” by providing a testimonial about a favorite library employee.

Molly Shannon is celebrating National Library Week as Honorary Chair and has this to say about the importance of Libraries, “Libraries are places where communities connect – to things like broadband, computers, programs and classes, books, movies, video games and more. But most importantly libraries connect us to each other.”
It’s NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK!
