We are partnering with UNIFI, a UNI student organization, to host our 2nd Annual Read-Out on Thursday, September 26th, from 12:00pm-4pm in front of Rod Library. Stop by and read a favorite banned book or stop and listen/discuss books that have been banned.
For more information on what Banned Books Week is, the history of Banned Books Week, and listings of books that have been banned, go to: www.ala.org/bbooks/.
The deadline to turn in registration forms for the Library Hunger Games event has been extended. Participants and volunteers now have until Wednesday, September 18th to turn their forms in.
People can sign up as individuals or in teams (maximum of 4 people on a team). It's a great opportunity for people to get to know our library space, some of our library staff, have fun, and meet new people.
Forms and more information can be found at www.tinyurl.com/CVHG3. Come join us for fun, games, free food and prizes!!!! If you are on the fence about volunteering, there's still time to volunteer as we need people the night of the games from 4:30-9 pm.
the Library has a never ending book sale? Many withdrawn materials are placed out for the public to purchase. $1 for paperback, $2 for hardback. The shelves are currently located behind the reference collection.
Rod Library is looking to foster a culture of excellence in providing library service and to better understand user perceptions of library service quality. This is YOUR opportunity to tell us how well we are doing, whether you come to the library or use our resources online, and to give us insight into what users like you expect from Rod Library.
Starting April 15th, the library will be running a survey to gather input from you! Give us 3-5 minutes of your time and we'll give you a chance to win an iPad mini, in addition to other great prizes. The survey ends on Friday, May 3rd at 5pm.
We get input to create an even better Rod Library, and you get a chance at an iPad mini. We all win!

We have 4 new collaborative tables located in the learning commons behind the reference desk. Each station has a 47-inch tv screen and 5 VGA input connections to connect your PC laptop. We are also getting adapters so devices requiring video connectors other than VGA can utilize these stations as well.
Also new in the learning commons, we have a new electric stapler! You can staple up to 25 pages at a time without pressing a button! If you need to staple more than 25 pages, ask at the reference desk and we'd be happy to assist you.
Stop by the learning commons to see the changes we've made!
that the librarians have created guides for specific subjects, courses, and basic research tips? These guides are full of information on how to find sources as well as other related information about a specific subject or UNI course. They can be found by clicking on "subject guides" on the left hand side of the library homepage.
They are a very good resource for you to use in your research!
