Love Your Library Week
Welcome to the rundown for Love Your Library Week. This is the week where we thank all our friends who visit us. It is also a great time to explore the library if you have been putting it off since you were accepted to school. We’re having several drawings for $50.00 gift cards. We’re offering treats to everyone who tries our library challenges. And on Thursday we’re going to host the first ever library hug! The first 400 students who join us to circle the library will get a free t-shirt.
On MONDAY, there will be an open house in Special Collections (HBLL 1130) from 1-3 pm. Six of the curators will bring out original materials and will be available to talk with students. Students who visit all the curators will receive a delicious sugar cookie. Also on Monday, students can pick up a Special Collections Website scavenger hunt card at the Love Your Library booth on level 3 and explore the website on their own. Completed cards are eligible for a drawing for a $50 gift card.
On TUESDAY, students stopping at the Love Your Library booth on level 3 can play a quick game which helps them get to know some of the subject librarians. They can also pick up the daily challenge card which requires them to visit five different help desks to get the answer to a specific question. Those who turn in their cards by 4 pm are eligible for the daily drawing for a $50 gift card.
On WEDNESDAY, students stopping at the Love Your Library booth can play a quick game of “Pin the Tail on the Call Number.” They can also participate in the daily challenge which guides them to various call numbers throughout the building to get clues. There will be a daily drawing for cards turned in by 4 pm.
On THURSDAY, the daily challenge is a photo scavenger hunt. Students are required to take a photo of five different locations in the building, bring those back to Love Your Library booth and show them (on their phone or digital camera) to the employee there, and then are eligible for the daily drawing. Our BIG FINISH is a Library Hug (because students love the library) at 11:11 am. We hope to have enough students participate to join hands around the outside of the library, essentially giving the building itself a “hug.” The first 400 students who participate will receive a t-shirt designed just for this event and which is not available any other way. http://www.facebook.com/events/319374531447459/
