National Library Week at the SAU Library

The week of April 13th – 19th is National Library Week, and this year, the SAU Library has several fun things planned to celebrate this week dedicated to libraries and all of the great services and information they provide.

Words with Librarians

Based on the popular Zynga game “Words With Friends,” the library is hosting our own giant sized version of the game. Starting Sunday and continuing through the rest of the week, students can stop in at any time and join the game against the librarians.

Lives Change @ Your Library

In cooperation with the American Library Association, the SAU library is taking part in a nationwide contest called “Lives Change @ Your Library.” Library patrons can pick up a “word bubble” form at the Reference or Circulation desk, fill it out to say how their lives have changed thanks to a library and take a photo with it. Photos can be shared  on your favorite social media channel using the hashtags #LivesChange and #NLW14. you can also take part by tweeting about how the library has changed their life using the hashtag #LivesChange and #NLW14. If your tweet or photo is chosen by ALA, you could win a brand new Kindle Fire!

Cookie Day

On Monday, April. 14th the library would like to thank all of you by providing cookies for anyone who stops in to the SAU Library! This is our way of showing our appreciation for everyone who uses our services, because a crucial part of any library is it’s patrons and you all should be recognized during this week as well.

Library Card Tree

Stop in to the library’s atrium to see a rather unique sight. Our library card tree is decorated with library cards from numerous libraries in the area as well as some from across the country. This colorful collection makes it fun to see the different designs and styles used by different libraries.
