The 2nd Annual Library Open Houses from September 8 - 10 were all a great success. Library staff welcomed over 300 students, faculty, staff and the community to the events with exciting library resources, fun activities and food.
Participants learned about the library’s
popular streaming video databases such as Films on Demand and SWANK
Motion Pictures, tested their library search skills by playing a game of
Library Jeopardy, took a self-guided tour of the library through an
iPad Scavenger Hunt, tested some educational apps and eBooks on the
iPads, created crafts like giant tissue paper flowers and loom
bracelets, practiced T’ai Chi Chih as a healthy and productive
work/study break, enjoyed a variety of refreshments, and won cool prizes
like a Reynolds t-shirt and a set of earbuds!
students, this was their first visit to the library and it offered them a
friendly introduction to the library’s space and services. Participants
commented that access to computers and the internet, the comfortable
atmosphere, and the friendly staff are the things they like most about

the feeling of sanctuary in the library.” A faculty member added that
“my favorite thing about the library are the personable, friendly,
helpful people. Thanks to all the good folk at the library for
everything you do.”
