CLEVELAND, Miss. — National Library Week is April 24 – 27, and DSU Library Services will celebrate with a full week of events. National Library Week aims to bring attention to the contributions of the nation’s libraries and to promote use and support. The national theme for the week is “There’s More to the Story” and all types of libraries—school, public, academic, and special—participate annually.
Reference/Instructional Services Librarian Peter Dean said, “I think this is a great opportunity to see new faces in the library that may not have had an opportunity to visit the library until now. We here at Roberts LaForge Library encourage everyone to stop by and explore all that the library has to offer our students.
The week’s events will kick off with trivia games Monday, April 24 at 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in room 157. Winners will receive Skullcandy earbuds. On Wednesday, April 26 from 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Dr. Josh Armstrong will lead a drum circle in the Instructional Resource Center. Thursday, April 27 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., a Faculty Author Showcase featuring three published authors – English professor Dr. Mel Anderson, History professor Andrew Wegmann and librarian CT Salazar will read from their published works and answer questions from the audience.
