A poetry reading, workshops and a scavenger hunt are among the activities planned to celebrate National Library Week.
The University Library will kick off the festivities on Monday, April 10, with poetry reading followed by a workshop for managing test anxiety. A library scavenger hunt will run through Thursday, April 13, and contestants are eligible to win prizes. Video recordings will be done throughout the week to give students, staff and faculty a chance to share how the library has transformed them.
National Library Workers’ Day is set for Tuesday, April 11, and patrons are encouraged to say something nice to library staff that day. An event commemorating the 100th anniversary of WWI and a presentation on Japanese internment also are planned that day.
Workshops on topics ranging from mindful meditation (Wednesday, April 12) to resume writing (Thursday, April 13) also will be offered.
