Come Celebrate National Library Week With Us!

NLW 2017 Events

April 10th to April 14th is National Library Week!  All week long, we are celebrating our constituents by offering a number of contests for you to win prizes.

In addition to tonight’s Second Annual National Library Week Trivia Night, we have four other contests going on all week, each with its own prizes for the winner.

  1. Coloring Contest:  In the Collaborative Commons, you’ll find some colored pencils and coloring sheets. Color the pages, answer the quick research question at the top, and turn it in to the Circulation Desk with your name on the back. Our panel of expert judges will pick winners on Friday–winners will receive their own coloring books and colored pencils to de-stress throughout the exam period. You can also vote for your favorite work of art on the Library’s Facebook page–the Fan Favorite winner will also get a prize!
  2. Favorite Fiction Matching Contest:  Try to match your favorite professors and library staff members to their favorite fiction book.  First prize is a wireless speaker donated by LexisAdvance.  Entry sheets are in the library lobby; just turn in your answers by Friday at noon for your chance to win!
  3. Candy Guessing Game:  Guess the number of pieces of candy in the jar at the Circulation Desk. The closest to the correct number of pieces will win the candy!
  4. National Library Week Survey:  Fill out our survey to let us know what services you’d like to see the library offer next year.  All students who enter have a chance to win one of two gift cards.
