The Whittemore Library will be celebrating National Library Week the week of April 13-17. This year’s theme is “Worlds Connect @ Your Library”. We have a number of activities and events planned for the campus community.
READ posters: Similar to the American Library Association’s celebrity “READ” posters, the Library staff will display photographs of faculty, staff, and students holding their favorite book.
Faculty Book/Art display: The library will display books written by the faculty and artwork. If you would like to donate some of your publications or artwork for display, please drop contact Colleen Previte, the college’s archivist.
Display of books and DVDs: The library will display series of books that highlight classics works, such as Great books of the Western World, The Harvard Classics, and the Nobel Prize Library, and of taped lectures from The Teaching Company.
Book Discussion: Professor Lisa Eck will lead a book discussion on Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. If you would like to read the book and are unable to join us for the book discussion, the library has extra copies of the book at the circulation desk. Tuesday, April 14 at 1:00pm, Archives Room
Musical Celebration: The Appalachian Travelers will perform music played by the immigrants and their descendants who settled the Blue Ridge Mountains in the 1600’s. During the 1920’s and 1030’s, this music came to prominence through the recordings of the Carter Family, the Monroe Brothers, and the Skillet Lickers. Thursday, April 16 at 1:30pm, Library entrance
Story time and Crafts: The Curriculum Library will be hosting the children from the Child Development Laboratory for a story and craft program based on the theme of National Library Week. Friday, April 17, Curriculum Library
