National Library Week events at Regent

by Sara Baron, Ed.D., Dean of the University Library

“Freedom is found through the portals of our nation’s libraries.”
—David McCullough, American historian

Next week (April 13 – 19) is the 56th annual celebration of National Library Week, a yearly observance sponsored by the American Library Association. The purpose of National Library Week is to draw attention to the contribution libraries make in the cultural and civic life of our country.

To mark this special week, the Library has planned four events:

1. Monday: Student Appreciation Day
We love and appreciate our students! Join us for a fun day at the library—games, snacks, surprises, and a chance to win a bookstore or Ordinary gift certificate.

2. Monday – Thursday: NLW Essay & Video Contest Announcements
Regent students were invited to submit essays and videos on the 2014 National Library Week theme, “Lives Change @ Your Library.” Winning essays will be announced daily, followed by the winning video.
